Michael Formanek quartet: The Rub and Spare Change CD Release Concert
 Michael Formanek: double-bass; Tim Berne: alto saxophone; Craig Taborn: piano; Gerald Cleaver: drums
The Rub and Spare Change is the remarkable ECM debut of Michael Formanek, creative improvising bassist, resourceful jazz composer, and bandleader able to bring forth inspired performances from his cohorts. The album features a new band which nonetheless draws upon years of shared experiences.

When Formanek assembled his quartet for a set at New York City club The Stone in August 2008, the forceful spirit of the performance convinced him that this was an ensemble that needed to be documented on disc. The quartet was duly recorded in June 2009 in Hampton, New Jersey, and the music then mixed with Manfred Eicher at New York’s Avatar Studios, spirit very much intact.
TICKETS: $20 general/$10 students

Saturday, October 30, 8 PM
Full Fathom Five: Music from the age of Shakespeare and Elizabeth I
Elizabeth Hungerford, soprano; Kevin Payne, lute
A Seattle native, lutenist Kevin Payne holds a Bachelors degree in classical guitar performance, and a Masters degree in renaissance lute performance from Peabody Conservatory of Music, where he studied Mark Cudek and Richard Stone. Additionally, Kevin has performed in masterclasses for Hopkinson Smith and Ronn McFarlane. Kevin is a member of the Peabody Renaissance Ensemble and the Peabody Consort, with whom he recently performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

Praised by the Washington Post for her “clarion” sound and by Ionarts as “breathtaking,” soprano Elizabeth Hungerford has enjoyed significant early success for her interpretations of early vocal literature. Ms. Hungerford specializes in early music as a soloist and in small ensembles, though her versatility has allowed her to give commanding performances of repertoire from the Middle Ages to the present day.
TICKETS: $ 12 general / $ 5 students.
Join them for a post-concert wine reception.

Park at the Franklin Street Garage (at the corner of Charles & Franklin Streets) for just $2 on evenings and weekends. You must pick up a voucher at An die Musik in order to receive the discounted rate.
