Thanks to everyone who gave to Solaris on Giving Tuesday!
WE thought you might like to know more about the guest artist for our December concerts, flutist Karen Kevra: Karen Kevra has won attention as one of the country's outstanding flutists through her distinctive warm and extroverted performances and has been hailed as "having a musical focus and depth seen in few flutists anywhere." Kevra's recording of Works for Flute and Piano by Louis Moyse along with pianist Paul Orgel earned a 2003 Grammy nomination and accolades from numerous American reviewers. Romantic Music for Flute and Piano, her latest CD with pianist Jeffrey Chappell, was praised by flutist Sir James Galway, and the Boston Musical Intelligencer for "sublimely satisfying flute-playing." Kevra has performed throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe including performances at Carnegie Hall, the French Embassy in Washington, DC, and on French National Television, and has shared the stage with members of the Emerson and Talich String Quartets, the Paris Piano Trio, Borromeo String Quartet, Boston Chamber Music Society, and Trey Anastasio of Phish. Kevra is the founder and Artistic Director of Capital City Concerts of Montpelier, Vermont.
Get ready for GIVING TUESDAY – the perfect antidote to Black Friday and Cyber Monday! On Tuesday after Thanksgiving, November 27, 2018, when you make a gift to Solaris via Facebook, it has the possibility of being matched dollar for dollar. Many, many non-profit groups are competing for these matching funds, so making your gift early in the day is suggested to receive the maximum benefit. The magic only happens that Tuesday! Because we are so excited by this opportunity, we are holding the printing of our 2018-19 program booklet in order to be able to include your name among the donors. We sincerely wish you a very happy Thanksgiving weekend, and hope you will also want to offer thanks for continuing choral music performances by Solaris, by visiting our Facebook page on Giving Tuesday!
