A Palaver Strings day for Bay Chamber
Rockport — On Saturday, April 22, Bay Chamber Concerts will present a Palaver Strings day of music in Union Hall, 24 Central St. The day will begin at 10 a.m. with a special yoga class, hosted by instructors Missy Hatch and Rachel Nixon, who will choreograph the movements inspired by the live music performance. This offering is free and open to all levels, ages and abilities.
Saturday evening at 6 p.m., Palaver Strings will present the second in Bay Chamber’s Music@Dusk series, sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank. Palaver will be joined by longtime friends The Gawler Sisters and Bennett Konesni for an eclectic program that includes music from many genres. From New England’s rolling hills and lush forests; to its craggy shores and rock-filled fields, this highly accomplished group of musicians comes together in a cross-genre celebration inspired by this diverse landscape. The program ranges from homegrown folk music to the lush romance of Dvořák’s impression of the New World.
Palaver Strings, a musician-led string orchestra, was formed in 2014 by a group of young musicians from the Boston area dedicated to the collaborative interpretation of masterworks of the classical repertoire. Each member of Palaver Strings is passionate about taking classical music beyond the concert hall to engage with diverse and new audiences.
Music@Dusk is an hour-long performance during which concertgoers can enjoy a glass of wine in the intimate setting of Union Hall. Tickets are $30, $10 for those younger than 25. For advance tickets and more information, visit baychamberconcerts.org.
