Jazz and Classics for Change Event
Saturday, May 20, 4:00 pm$20 – $75
Gili Melamed-Lev, co-founder of Jazz and Classics for Change, chooses concert selections that bring beauty and joy to the listeners. “For the Saturday, May 20th afternoon,” she says, “I picked Dvorak’s Piano Quintet because it’s inspiring and beautiful. We’ll open with an Intermezzo by Kodaly to set the tone, and conclude with work composed only last year by Seth Grosshandler. From Kodaly’s Eastern European origin to Grosshandler’s composition created during the pandemic, it’s quite cross-cultural. And, for me, the bottom line is to always present inspiring and uplifting music with musicians of the highest caliber.”
The 4PM concert will be held at Tydeman Farm, 564 County Rte. 10 in Germantown with thanks to owners Brian and Lindsay Shea. “It’s relaxed and casual,” the pianist said. “There will be chairs set up in the barn. And doors on all four sides will be open, so listeners are free to sit outside on the lawn if they prefer.” The musicians, from the Orchestra of St. Luke (and friends), include Krista Bennion Feeney – violin, Anthony Bracewell – violin, David Cerutti – viola, Serafim Smigelskiy – cello, and Melamed-Lev on piano.
