PVPhoto2910The critically-acclaimed Palisades Virtuosi presents American Jubilee - the third subscription concert of their 2012-2013 season on Saturday, April 6 – 8:00 PM at the Unitarian Society of Ridgewood, 113 Cottage Place in Ridgewood, New Jersey. The evening will also include a pre-concert composer and performer talk at 7:15.

April 6 concert repertoire will include the World Premiere of Linda Marcel’s Evocare II, commissioned by the Palisades Virtuosi. The composer writes about the new work, “The composition Evocare II evokes an ambiance of sound through cascades of tonal patterns and fleeting patterns of melody. The work incorporates the meditative sounds of Tibetan bowls that augment the Palisades Virtuosi trio’s palette of color.”

Repertoire also includes Leonard Bernstein’s Trio, transcribed by the Virtuosi, Libby Larsen’s Barn Dances, transcriptions of Gershwin’s Preludes and I Got Rhythm Variations and George Washington Slept Here by John Lampkin.

Tickets for the April 6 concert are $20, $15 for students and seniors and $10 for children age 12 and under.
