Beyond Classical: Black History Month concert with Grammy nominee Jannina Norpoth-Jason Amos String Quartet
February 29 @ 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM EST$50
Palmer Woods Music in Homes celebrates Black History Month with a sensational string ensemble, extraordinary music and soulfood-inspired dinner — in a magnificent 1927 Tudor filled with an extensive museum-quality collection of African-American art. Grammy-nominated violinist Jannina Barefield Norpoth returns to her hometown with musical partners violist Jason Amos, and bassist/husband John-Paul Norpoth to join world-acclaimed guitarist/composer A. Spencer Barefield (her dad!). Enjoy magical music, merging European Classical with American Classical (jazz and music of the African diaspora), and sounds exploring new, imaginative terrain. The concert will showcase chamber music that highlights the legacy of Black Composers in America and beyond, including works by giants of past centuries, as well as trailblazing contemporary composers. Composers featured will include Jessie Montgomery, Frederick C. Tillis, Andres Martin, and a world premiere of a new composition by A. Spencer Barefield commissioned with the support of the Knight Foundation.
