Don't forget - the Kassia Music concert that was originally scheduled for January 13 has been rescheduled for this Sunday, January 20!
Music that’s easy on the ears is the goal of Kassia Music, which will perform as part of the National Music Festival’s RESONANCE series this Sunday afternoon, Jan. 20, at St. Paul’s Parish, Kent, 7579 Sandy Bottom Rd.
“For many people, modern classical means really difficult stuff — experimental, dissonant and atonal,” said Sam Post, pianist, composer and a founder. Not so with Kassia Music, six instrumentalists based in the Washington, D.C. area.
The concert will take place near a warming fireplace, and complimentary light refreshments will be served at intermission.
The program will include Post’s “Clarinet Quintet on Hebrew-ish Themes.” That doesn’t mean five clarinets but indicates that clarinetist Lauren Geist plays a major role in this number along with the strings of Elizabeth Adams, a National Music Festival violin mentor; Suzanna Mendlow, cello; Adina Vallandingham, violin; Bernard Vallandingham, viola; and Post on piano.
