French Masterpieces for A Midsummer’s Night

It is probably safe to say that the Fauré Requiem is one of the most popular and performed pieces of music in the entire choral literature. And for good reason: Fauré captured the essence of all that is beautiful and transporting in a format that is modest in size, but huge in concept.

The music composed and performed by Eugene Uman, pianist and leader of the Convergence Project, achieves a difficult feat: it balances on an artistic tightrope between fresh, innovative and exploratory on one side, and accessible, understandable, exceedingly enjoyable and fun to listen to on the other. What keeps the project unified is the integrity of the compositions, the shared vision of the group’s members and the careful balance of jazz harmonies with Colombian rhythms.

Heather Maloney w/ Sam Moss at Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery Friday, April 26

Twilight music presents Northampton, Massachusetts-based singer/songwriter Heather Maloney with her band (Ken Maiuri on bass and J.J. O’Connell on drums), plus multi-instrumentalist and singer Sam Moss at Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery on Friday, April 26 at 7:30 pm.

Rooted in what she calls “adventurous folk,” Heather Maloney’s smart, catchy and soulful music features literate songwriting that explores themes of spirituality, transformation, and impermanence. Maloney’s brand new self-titled CD is the third album for the songwriter hailed by The Huffington Post for “lyrics that cut to the chase.” DigBoston wrote that she “deserves the type of cult following that has allowed the likes of Aimee Mann and Ani DiFranco that long standing success and influence they have had.” As a classically trained vocalist who once aimed for the opera, there is a strength and certainty in Maloney’s voice that provides a solid foundation for the vocal playfulness throughout her work.
