Musicians of the night:
Venezuelan cellist Tulio Rondón plays a Suite by Bach.
Duo OboeBass! - back by popular demand, the world´s only oboe/bass duo performs music by Goplerud, Mann, Julie Johnson and Eric Hansen.
with Carrie Vecchione - oboe, and Rolf Erdahl on bass.
Choro Borealis - this exciting trio will warm your hearts with Choro-music from Brazil!
Robert Everest on 7-string guitar, cavaquinho (a steel-string cousin of the ukulele), and occasionally vocals and percussion; Pat O'Keefe on Bb Clarinet, bass clarinet, and percussion; and Tim O'Keefe on mandolin, cavaquinho, and percussion. The magic of the group is in the playful rotation of instruments. For one number Tim and Pat take turns on the melody and solos while Robert plays bass-lines on the low strings. On the next tune Robert might play the cavaquinho and sing in fluent Portuguese while Tim plays percussion and Pat covers the lower range on bass clarinet. All three also compose and arrange music in their repertoire, which includes many Choro favorites easily recognized by any Brazilian or Brazilian music connoisseur. One thing that makes this trio so engaging is the far-reaching musical endeavors and broad palettte of all three members, each with a unique musical background.
