Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, Kentucky, has turned a tobacco barn into a chamber music stage for the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. This week at 4pm, Daniel Gilliam will feature performances from the 2011 Chamber Music Festival of the Bluegrass, and give you a chance to win tickets for this year’s festival (May 25 & 26).
Imani Winds stopped by Classical 90.5 while in town to perform “Rhythm and Song: The Influence of the African Diaspora on Classical Music,” at the University of Louisville. Hear their conversation with Alan Brandt, and selections from their self-titled album (including works by Louisville-native Valerie Coleman, and horn player Jeff Scott).
Doors open at 11:45am. Brown bag your lunch and join us for this free performance. If you’re a member of Classical 90.5 at the $52 level or higher, call to reserve a free lunch from the City Café (first 20 callers receive a lunch). Call (502) 814-6565 to reserve your lunch by noon the Tuesday before the show. Seating is limited.
