Garden Evening Concert and Cheryl O with friends

It's been pretty quiet at the Majlis, perhaps due to the unending heat.  But we have 2 concerts coming up:

Tricia Postle (mezzo) with William Shookhoff (piano)
August 3rd, 8 pm - suggested donation $20

"Garden Evening" - songs from the 16th century to contemporary. Includes Belle Époque works by Roger Quilter and Raynaldo Hahn, and three Canadian premieres.

Songs about romantic bowers, nightingales, roses, lilacs, gardeners, and talkative crows.
(Storm date August 4th.)

Other upcoming performances

Cheryl O and friends - August 2nd, 8 pm

Cheryl and her cello will be back at Majlis, with percussionist Jeff Luciani and others TBA. We look forward to another evening of deftly-pulled-together, playful, improvisational music.

More details to follow!
