Rachael Elliott
7:00 PM





 

Rachael Elliott bassoonist, joined by virtuoso percussionist, Thomas Kozumplik, will perform a bassoon-percussion duet at York Street Meeting House, 153 York Street, Lyndon on Friday September 2 at 7 pm. Admission by donation.

 

Elliott, a native of Lyndon, is a versatile performer who is active in classical, new music, improvised and rock/pop settings. She is a founding member of the genre-bending new music group, Clogs, with whom she has recorded five acclaimed albums and appeared throughout the United States, Europe and Australia. She is principal bassoonist of the Burlington Chamber Orchestra and a substitute bassoonist with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra. Elliott was previously principal bassoonist and bassoon soloist with the Collegium Musicum in Juelich, Germany. She received bassoon performance degrees from the Manhattan School of Music and the Yale School of Music.

 

Kozumplik is involved with a wide range of music as creator, producer, collaborator, and freelancer. He co-founded the art/improv group Clogs, artist-owned record label Music Starts From Silence, and was a member of the Yale Percussion Group, the Robert Hohner Percussion Ensemble, the Ron Parmentier Trio, and Uncle Jimmy’s Dirty Basement. His performances have been called “dazzling throughout” (Mojo, UK), “sublime” (Pitchfork, USA), “smart and engaging” (New York Times), and “the hit for me” (composer Terry Riley via the New York Times).

Supported in part by a grant from the Vermont Arts Council & the National Endowment for the Arts. The Meeting House is handicap accessible. Masks are voluntary, but encouraged.

Samirah Evans
7:00 PM





 Free.  Clemmons Family Farm and Catamount Arts are pleased to announce Samirah Evans, known for her dynamic and soulful approach to jazz and blues, in St. Johnsbury, as part of the Facing the Sunrise Black Performing Arts Series. The series aims to engage audiences with stellar performances that celebrate and teach the Black Experience with positive and uplifting messages from the Black artist community.

 

The concert will feature selections composed or popularized by black artists. The song selections will paint a picture of our history from 400 years ago illustrated by Nat Adderley’s “Work Song” to selections celebrating the history we are making today such as Georgia on Mind popularized by Ray Charles. Plus, songs of understanding and hope for the future of humanity such as “I wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free” popularized by Nina Simone. In addition, there will be traditional and original songs performed that will give you a taste of New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz where Samirah Evans hailed before moving to Vermont.
