Misto di Voci Ensemble
WHEN: *Saturday, October 29, 2 PM
TICKETS: $12/$5 students
Paula Hickey, clarinet; David Yarbrough, violin; Daniel Lau, piano
Translated as “mixed voices” from Italian, Misto di Voci describes the complimentary timbres of the ensemble. Three seasoned musicians, all graduates of the Peabody Conservatory of Music, share the goal of presenting this rich genre of music. Part of their mission is to perform for musically underserved communities and educational institutions. The Misto di Voci Ensemble enjoys interacting with audiences by discussing the music performed.
Alon Nechushtan Trio
WHEN: Saturday, October 29, 8 & 9:30 PM
TICKETS: $12 / $10 students
Alon Nechushtan, piano; Junior Terry, bass; Franco Pinna, drums
For his first solo recording, Alon is surrounded by one of the few rhythm sections able to immerse themselves and meander through his original compositions, inspired sometimes by Mendelssohn, sometimes Thelonius Monk or Keith Jarrett. They make it all seem easy and fun, in a recording you can dig into for a long time.

Select piano, violin and cello students of teachers of The Baltimore Music Teachers Association perform music from the repertoire of western art music.
Benny Russell Trio
WHEN: Sunday, October 30, 5 & 7 PM
Benny Russell, saxophone; Greg Hatza, Hammond B-3 Organ; Robert Shahid, drums
Russell has had an illustrious career as a performer, composer and educator. In 2005, he was commissioned to write a Jazz score for Zora Neale Hurson’s play Cold Keener. In 2004, Russell was hired to chair the Jazz department at the Maryland Conservatory of Music. Already he has produced a successful Count Basie 100th Birthday Celebration that featured the legendary Frank Foster and Grammy award winners Antonio Hart and Mark Gross. Presently, he is signed to Arabesque Records and is working on his second release entitled Miracles which features James Spaulding, Cecil Bridgewater and many other luminaries.
A native of Reading, Pennsylvania, Greg Hatza's musical instincts came to him as early and as naturally as the ability to walk, and he was picking out blues and boogie woogie tunes on the piano around age four before starting formal lessons shortly thereafter. The Hammond B-3 became his life's obsession as a teenager, when a friend turned him on to records by Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, Ray Charles and Johnny Hammond Smith. His first professional gig on the instrument came when he was 16, with the Frankie Scott Trio, where he played around small towns in central Pennsylvania
