Shaker Arts Council House Concert Features Classical Guitar, Original Song Suite
The mission of the nonprofit Shaker Arts Council is to encourage the growth of the arts in Shaker Heights. One of the things like they to do is intimate house concerts that showcase beautiful Shaker
homes, and allow neighbors to meet neighbors while sampling the wealth of talent in the area. And they raise money to keep up their work.
Their upcoming house
concert will feature pop/jazz guitarist Victor Samalot (pictured), playing “Adelita” by 19th-century Spanish classical guitarist and composer Francisco Tárrega.
He’ll be joined by Shaker resident, composer/sound
designer Bruce Jennings, who set to music 20 poems written in 1914 by physician/naturalist Frederic Brush. He’ll perform some of the songs from this suite which is titled Threnody: Songs of the Susquehanna.
starts at 7:45, following a pre-concert reception at 7:00 pm.
