Read this article about our upcoming concert at the Sandwich Town Hall:
Classical musicians Monika Woods and Friends will perform at Sandwich Town Hall on Saturday, November 10, from 7 to 9 PM. This is the second presentation in the four-part Village Concert Series sponsored by the Sandwich Arts Alliance (SAA). Tickets are $25, $10 for students, and may be purchased through the SAA website or at Splash Stationers on Route 6A in Sandwich.
A Transylvania-born Hungarian-American clarinetist and a first-place winner of the Cape Cod Symphony’s soloist competition, Monika Woods is also co-founder and president of Open Mic Classical, a monthly afternoon music session she presides over at Brewster First Parish Church and other Cape locations.
It is through her open mic sessions that Ms. Woods has met and made friends with many talented Cape Cod musicians, five of whom she selected to accompany her for this concert featuring chamber music with a few unusual combinations such as a saxophone, clarinet, flute and piano quartet.
Some of the musicians who hail from Eastern Europe will offer a taste of music from their region of the globe, including Georgian, Hungarian and Romanian pieces. “There will be plenty of works from American composers to counterbalance the program,” according to Ms. Woods, “and we have some great tango music at the end.”
Joining Ms. Woods for the concert will be Trio Vivo, consisting of flutist Mariellen Sears, saxophonist Bruce Abbott and pianist Lucy Banner, in addition to violinist Dan Flonta and pianist Ana Glig.
A sample of the Eastern European pieces that will be performed are “Three Hungarian Folksongs” and “Romanian Dances” by Bartok, and Dvorzak’s “Slavonic Dance op. 72 no.2.”
Sandwich Town Hall is at 130 Main Street.
