Arts in the Village Presents Some Assembly Required in Concert
On Saturday, April 27, Arts in the Village welcomes Some Assembly Required, a mixed chamber ensemble that is performing for the first time in this concert series. For this concert, SAR will present a program that explores various aspects of spirituality through music by Stravinsky, Margaret Brouwer, and a world premiere by Adam Schumaker, with guests Wol¬cott Humphrey (clarinet) and Andrea Baker (bassoon).
SAR was founded in early 2015 as a collaborative effort between Boston professional and freelance artists to provide their audience with a unique musical experience, frequently venturing into repertoire that is rarely heard in public performance. In three seasons, SAR has performed dozens of concerts in New England and across the eastern United States, from Kentucky to the Bronx.
Not accepting the limitations placed upon them by the small amount of repertoire available for their instrumentation, SAR starts by choosing music that they want to present and then finding a way to provide a meaningful presentation of the music by methods of arrangement and collaboration. The core members of the ensemble strive to design programs that go beyond the traditional concert format by bringing the performers, audience, and venue into close contact.
This concert will take place on Saturday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m., at Goff Memorial Hall, 124 Bay State Road, in Rehoboth, MA 02769. Admission is $18 for adults, $16 for seniors, and $8 for students and children. The doors open at 7:00 p.m. for a wine bar, and tickets are available at the door. First-come, first-seated. Wheelchair accessible. Cash and checks only. Information: 508-463-5384; http://www.rehobothantiquarian.org/arts-in-the-village/.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Rehoboth Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a stage agency.
