Garden House Concert: Alchymeia
January 8, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The practitioners of the ancient art of alchemy often sought to transform or combine a variety of elements. Alchymeia combines musical elements from folk songs around the world to create a rich and uniquely beautiful musical substance.
The repertoire reflects the varying backgrounds of the ensemble’s founding musicians: Nadia Tarnawsky has been immersed in Eastern European singing techniques for decades, and Brandon Vance is a champion fiddler in a variety of styles. John Lenti joins this evening on guitar, bringing his years of experience performing baroque stringed instruments with “nuanced beauty and character”.
Appalachia, Ukraine, Scotland, the Balkans, and beyond–all provide elements transformed by the magic of Alchymeia.
Doors open at 7:30.
Light snacks and beverages, including wine and beer, available for purchase. Parking and accessible entry around back (alley entrance via S Bayview or S College streets).
