Music at Bath Concert Series (April 14 & April 21)


April 14 and 21

Music at Bath Concert series

The Music at Bath Concert Series continues with a performance by Dan Shiller, a world percussionist from Austintown, Ohio, in The Bath Church UCC Sanctuary, 3980 West Bath Rd., on Sunday, April 14, at 4 p.m. He will present a program woven around Anansi (a spider), the most popular character in West African folklore associated with wisdom, knowledge and trickery. Shiller will perform on the gyil, a pentatonic instrument from Ghana, and the steel pan from Trinidad.

On Sunday, April 21, some of northeast Ohio’s top brass musicians will perform at 4 p.m. in The Bath Church UCC Sanctuary. The performance will range from Baroque to modern, classical to jazz and religious to secular. Ensembles will include duets, a “choir” of eight and everything in-between. Audience members will hear antiphonal Gabrielli, the Baroque version of “Dueling Banjos” with two brass quartets, and the full brass choir accompanied by organ for a grand Gustav Mahler finale. Both concerts are free admission and the Sanctuary is handicap accessible. ∞
