Ensemble to perform ‘Jazzing It Up’
The Sherman Chamber Ensemble will present “Jazzing It Up” concerts Nov. 24-25 in Pawling, N.Y., and Kent.
Concerts will be held Nov. 24 at 4 p.m. at Christ Church on Quaker Hill, 7 Church Road, Pawling, and Nov. 25 at 4 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 1 North Main St.
The concerts will feature Ted Rosenthal on piano and Eddie Barbash on alto sax.
The musicians will be joined by accomplished New York musicians, including Thomson Kneeland (double bass), Chris Parker (drums), Susan Rotholz, (flute) and Bailen (cello) in a program that features excerpts from Rosenthal’s Jazz Opera, “Dear Erich,” commissioned by New York City Opera.
Jazz-inspired renditions of works by Harold Arlen and Astor Piazolla, along with original compositions by Parker and Kneeland, will also be showcased.
“The combination of Rosenthal, one of the leading jazz pianists of his generation, and Barbash, an exciting, young virtuoso will have audiences jumping in their seats,” said Liba Furhman, executive director of the Sherman Chamber Ensemble.
The performances will be followed by a reception featuring light refreshments and a chance to meet and talk with the performers.
General admission is $30. Senior and student tickets are $25. Children ages 15 and under will be admitted free with the purchase of a paid ticket.
Tickets may be purchased online at www.ShermanChamberEnsemble.org or at the door.
