Performance and Event Calendar

"Some people say 'flutist.' Others say 'flautist.' I just say 'flute player.' That's what I was." –Henry Mancini On Saturday, May 18th at 8pm at St. John's in the Village, Composers Concordance presents 'Flautos & Flautists.' This wonderful food-and-music concert event features new music composed for flute ensemble, plus delicious flautos provided by Monica Von Thun Calderón's exceptional Grandaisy Bakery.

Aaron Alter's "Solar Rays" for Flute Sextet will be premiered in addition to music by Dennis Bathory-Kitsz, Kitty Brazelton, John Clark, Dan Cooper, Shanan Estreicher, Peter Jarvis, David Mastikosa, Joseph Pehrson, Gene Pritsker and Carolyn Steinberg. Acclaimed flautists Karen Bogardus, Tessa Brinckman, Lish Lindsey, Evan Francis, Jeff Mitchell, and Carmen Isabel Delgado will perform, joined by guest flautists Kitty Brazelton and Zara Lawler.

Monica Von Thun Calderón writes "At Grandaisy Bakery, we believe that a name carries a legacy. When it was time to name my bakery, I named it after my beloved grandmother, Grandaisy. Bread, or as we say in Italian, "il pane," is at the heart of everything we do. Our motto, "all we knead is love," captures our passion for crafting exceptional loaves that go beyond the ordinary. Our bakeshop offers a delightful selection of Roman-style flatbreads and panini, crafted with fresh and delicious ingredients. Join us at Grandaisy Bakery, where the love for bread, the dedication of our artisans, and the joy of sharing good food converge." The concert will also be live-streamed on Composers Concordance's Facebook Page.
