Jeffrey Cohan ~ flute

Sublime music for flute and keyboard: joyful and uplifting, clear and compassionate. Johann Sebastian Bach! A selection of sonatas and Inventions for solo harpsichord, performed here by Jeffrey and Jonathan on modern flute and harpsichord, including two that are traditionally but disputably by Bach ... although they could hardly be by anyone else. A transporting program!

For the fifth year, artists and friends from classical and jazz realms meld their musical perspectives in this unusual collaboration and festive celebration of the Yuletide season that is guaranteed to generate an abundance of Christmas cheer - in a brand new program (as always) for 2019! 

For centuries instrumental musicians have "jazzed up" familiar melodies in the style of their day, and this team's virtuoso improvisations on Yuletide favorites, and their renditions of classical standards will bridge contemporary improvisational jazz and art music of the Baroque and Renaissance by way of the joyous melodies of the season, bringing together the best of jazz and classical worlds.

The tenth annual Candlelight Concerts in memory of George Shangrow continues a tradition which George initiated with candlelight evenings of chamber music and holiday favorites over many decades.  Chamber music both familiar and new is performed by some of the Northwest’s prominent soloists.
