Our 2016-2017 Season

Our new season combines the traditional (harpist, pianist, early music) with the absolutely unique (Russian Duo, Brasshoppers).

October 2, 2016 at 7:00 PM
Russian Duo

Our thirty-fifth season opens with a celebration of cross cultural creativity featuring the Russian Duo, Oleg Kruglyakov, balalaika virtuoso from Siberia and Terry Boyarsky, American concert pianist and singer. Their remarkable combination of works written for the three stringed instrument from the 1800s as well as classical repertoire marks a first for our society with their blend of folk, traditional, classical and world music. We are thrilled to have them appear in Fairmont.

Known for their “energetic and kinetic programming” Brasshoppers is a trio composed of trumpeter Mary Elizabeth Bowden, trombonist Zenas Kim-Banther and pianist Milana Strezeva. These gifted women hail from diverse points around the globe and are educated at some of the finest music schools in the world. The Trio’s music portrays an eclectic blend of traditional classical music and jazz inspired arrangements of standards and popular tunes.

Performing with two lutes, vocals, colascione and percussion, the quartet Ayreheart continues our presentation of early music. Ayreheart was founded by GRAMMY nominated lutenist and composer Ronn McFarlane and plays the music of Renaissance composers John Dowland, William Byrd, and John Johnson as well as old ballad tunes from England, Scotland and Wales. The Washington Times said “…some of the most ravishing lute playing to be heard anywhere”.
