Jan. 20, 2014. On Sunday, Jan. 26, at 3 p.m., I Have a Dream Week will conclude with a chamber music concert by “A Musical Feast.” The concert will be held at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church on Coucill Street in Boone and will celebrate cultural diversity with music from England to India.
The program will include a trio by Haydn for flute, cello and piano (with Kay Borkowski, flute; Corrine Cassini, cello; and Melissa Lesbines, piano), a duo by Benjamin Britten for flute and violin (Kay Barkowski and Laura Coston with both performers doubling on piano), a trio by R. Kahn for oboe, French horn and piano (Jessica Warner, oboe; Stephanie Blaha, French horn; Melissa Lesbines, piano) and an Indian rage for flute and tabla (Akal Dev Sharonne, flute; Pankaj Desai, Tabla).
“A Musical Feast” brings together outstanding musicians with independent affiliations. Artistic Director and flutist Akal Dev Sharonne says “in the last several years, I have been inspired by the number of terrific musicians in the High Country who are not often heart in concert. I got the idea of bringing us all together to do what we love so dearly – playing chamber music. It was gratifying to receive such an enthusiastic response from everyone I invited. And it’s always an honor to be part of our community’s celebration of the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr.”
Admission is $10 with a student discount of $5 for full-time students with ID cards. Children under the age of 12 are admitted free. A reception will follow the performance. For reservation and more information, please contact Akal Dev Sharonne, artistic director, at 828-264-1384.
