Featuring compositions by J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Schoenberg, and Spohr, Illumine, a Philadelphia-based trio, is performing at Shenkel United Church of Christ in North Coventry Township, tonight, Friday, May 20, 2016. The free concert, open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. Shenkel UCC, 1580 Shenkel Road, Pottstown, PA.
This dynamic group of talented musicians includes David Matthew Brown, Kaitlyn Waterson, and Jodie Levine Brown.
An active and ardent performer of both ‘classical’ music and traditional style Celtic music, violinist-composer David Matthew Brown merges passion with ingenuity. Lyric mezzo-soprano Kaitlyn Michelle Waterson performs art song, opera, and musical theater alike with stunning clarity and charisma. Esteemed for her Mozartian ear and improvisatory prowess, pianist Jodie Levine Brown has amazed audiences since her first public recital at the age of four.
The concert is the first of a four-part series entitled Elemental/National, featuring the music of four, iconic European countries. Italy, France, Germany, and Spain will be metaphorically paired respectively with the four Classical elements: Air, Water, Earth, and Fire.
