Free Concert Series at Founders Row
Sixth & I, Washington, DCMore details
Hailed for her “luscious, moody, and dreamy” playing by The New York Times, pianist Lara Downes is equally celebrated as a musical innovator and cultural investigator—as heard most recently and widely on her NPR interview series, Amplify with Lara Downes. In this performance, she presents a kaleidoscopic evening of music and poetry inspired by myriad stories of migration and transformation, joined in special-guest appearances by Pulitzer-winning poet Rita Dove and by the vibrant and innovative Thalea Quartet, Graduate String Quartet in residence at the University of Maryland School of Music. The program includes works by Duke Ellington, Quinn Mason, Florence Price, Carlos Simon, Nina Simone, Alvin Singleton, and William Grant Still.
