The Umoya Trio debuts in Brandon

BRANDON — On Saturday, Oct. 5, Brandon Music will welcome The Umoya Trio for their debut performance of classical recorder music at the Brandon venue.
The Umoya Trio is a multi-generational ensemble hailing from three different countries, connected by their love of recorder music and the gratification of experiencing the energy it brings with it. The word “Umoya” (Xhosa for “wind”) is a nod to the energy of the wind: of fierce siroccos, turbulent gales, swirling mistrals, and gentle cool breezes, and of course, the energy from their wind-powered instruments. This Boston-based group (Kaleem Ahmid, Chantal Holy and Anna Laufenberg) is equally adept with its Baroque and Renaissance repertoire as it is with its modern and (unusually for their instruments) classical-period works.
At their debut performance at Brandon Music, The Umoya Trio will share a selection of music spanning over 400 years, with intriguing pieces from the High Baroque (C. Ph. E. Bach), Classical (L. v. Beethoven), and Modern periods (S. Sieg): an intriguing program to demonstrate and explore the storied history and versatility of the recorder. For lovers of classical music and those with a special affinity for wind instruments this promises to be a special concert.
Concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is available for an extra $25.  Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB. Call (802) 247-4295, email [email protected] or visit brandon-music.net.
