Trio Sefardi to open RESONANCE season

The National Music Festival will launch its 2018 – 2019 RESONANCE concert series Oct. 28 with a performance by Trio Sefardi. The six-concert season runs through April 2019 on Sunday afternoons at 3 p.m. at Saint Paul’s Parish, Kent: 7579 Sandy Bottom Road, Chestertown, MD.

Trio Sefardi performs ancient songs of the Sephardic Jews, who inhabited Spain and Portugal for centuries before being expelled in 1492. In exile, this Jewish minority maintained their Ladino language, oral culture, and folkloric music. Women of the community passed down these traditional songs, which deal with history, daily life, love, and loss.

Formed in 2010, Trio Sefardi’s members are Howard Bass (lute, guitar, bass), Tina Chancey (bowed string, percussion, vocals), and Susan Gaeta (solo vocals, guitar and percussion).

Thank you St. Paul's!

We are immensely grateful to Saint Paul's Parish, Kent for hosting the RESONANCE series this season! Performances are a pleasure in St. Paul's beautiful Parish Hall. 

RES.O.NANCE /ˈre-zə-nəns/ Noun: the quality in a sound of being deep, full, and reverberating … a quality of richness or variety.

RESONANCE concerts feature intimate, solo and small ensemble performances, presented by the National Music Festival.

“RESONANCE keeps the energy of our summer National Music Festival going year-round with high-quality performances by nationally known and regional artists,” said Caitlin Patton, NMF executive director. Now in its third season, RESONANCE was formerly known as Kent Chamber Music.

Other highlights of the season include a performance on February 17 by violist Miles Hoffman, founder and artistic director of the American Chamber Players. Hoffman is also author of The NPR Classical Music Companion: "An Essential Guide for Enlightened Listening," and a popular, long-time music commentator for NPR’s Morning Edition.
