We are very excited to announce that our event on Sunday, March 18th, 2018 will be a very unusual event. We are featuring two composers, with two groups of musicians.
Our first composer is Schubert, featured by a piano, clarinet, and voice trio: Betty Tipton on piano, Ellen Adamson voice, and Monika Woods on clarinet.
Our 2nd composer is Gershwin, featured with his famous work Blue Rhapsody with James Rosenblum on piano solo, and Ana Glig on piano playing the orchestral accompaniment, Monika Woods on clarinet.
This is a very unusual, and unique presentation of this piece. Be sure not to miss it.
So what is Open Mic Classical?
An “Open Mic” is for popular music only, right?
We are bringing you Open Mic Classical, a new experience in classical music, to help our community's musicians share their music with a friendly, supportive and appreciative audience.
Are you a doctor with a classical horn habit, or an orchestra member who misses playing in small ensembles? Are you an aspiring young student who doesn't ever get a chance to play with a pianist, but would like to develop your performing skills? Or a composer eager to try out your newest work?
Dust off your flugelhorn, oil your keys, drink your raw egg, and come share your talent in an intimate and casual atmosphere. Admission is donation based, and classical musicians of all ages and levels are welcome.
Pianist on site is available on request to accompany you.
“Open Mic Classical” is brought to you by clarinetist Mónika Woods (winner of the Cape Symphony's 2013 Soloist Competition) and amateur violist and sculptor Robert Marcus representing First Parish Brewster, with Lucy Banner and Elizabeth Tipton as collaborative pianists.
It will be held at 3:00 pm on the third Sunday of the month October through June at the Brewster Meeting House (1969 Main Street on Route 6A). Participants are asked to sign in at 2:45pm, rehearsal with pianist on request a 1-2 weeks before the event.
