The Abrams Brothers
Saturday, September 21, 2013

7:00PM, Watertown High School
Visit website: http://theabramsbrothers.com/band/

The Abrams Brothers, John, James and cousin Elijah, skillfully combine the music of their roots with their own distinct sound. It's a combination of bluegrass, country and folk-rock that's had the Canadian festival circuit up in arms over their potential, and the rest are catching on! The brothers are fourth-generation musicians (guitar, violin, bass) with musical roots reaching back to their great-grandparents. Despite their age (early 20s), veteran is certainly not a word out of reach given their credits and the fact that they have been performing and touring together for almost a decade.

Winner of the prestigious 2010 Gilmore Young Artist Award and the 2009 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, pianist Charlie Albright concluded the 2010-2011 season of debuts to critical acclaim, hailed as being "among the most gifted musicians of his generation" (Washington Post) whose"iimpressive range of differently colored sounds at the keyboard was matched by overwhelming virtuosity" while 'musical shape was never sacrificed to showmanship."

The New York Times praised his "jaw-dropping technique," "intelligently wrought interpretation" and "virtuosity meshed with a distinctive musicality."  Mr. Albright made his New York and Kennedy Center recital debuts on the Young Concert Artists Series and at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Orchestral debuts included the San Francisco Symphony with conductor Alondra de la Parra, the Seattle Symphony Orchestra with conductor Gerard Schwarz, and the Boston Pops with conductor Keith Lockhart.

Les Tropmettes de Lyon

Les Trompettes de Lyon

Five prodigiously competent trumpet masters, in no way starchy, will guide you with lightness, smartness and brilliance through all ages, forms and tones of their wonderful trumpets. The ensemble was born in 1989 from the meeting of five musicians trained in the academies of music and universities of Lyon, France. Today these very same musicians still compose that quite unique music group. While pursuing their classical training, these musicians have progressively let their taste for "quirky fun" run loose on stage—which has resulted in unabashedly entertaining and humorous shows that have met with ever increasing success. Just another way of saying that this is a really fun show—full of laughs—along with their fabulous musical talents.
