Connections Concert: Thresholds - ft. James Bird, Charlotte Malin & Sophie Lippert



Northampton Center for the Arts - Flex Space (33 Hawley St, Northampton MA 01060 MA)

Join Charlotte Malin (violin and viola), Sophie Lippert (piano and cello), and special guest James Bird (bardic songwriter) at Northampton Center for the Arts for an engaging, relaxing, and uplifting journey through multi-genre music, soulful collaborations, and connective interactions.

Connections Concert will showcase a dynamic array of solo and collaborative music: from brilliant modern classical pieces for violin and piano, to stunning poetic musings for guitar and voice, to transportive sonic co-creations between performers and the audience.

Featured composers will include Karen Tanaka, Augusta Read Thomas, Frédéric Chopin, Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou, César Franck, and James Bird.

The alchemy between classically-trained instrumentalists Malin and Lippert and spirit-led Bird will make for a truly unforgettable evening. All are welcome to this vitalizing, inspiring, and connective event!

Connections Concert Series is a partnership between Valley-based musicians, teachers and creative entrepreneurs Sophie Lippert and Charlotte Malin. The series is a re-imagining of the traditional concert experience that addresses our society’s growing need for meaningful human connection. At Connection Concerts, the audience is invited to listen somatically, imaginatively, and intellectually; to engage in conversations with strangers about their experience; and to explore music written by underrepresented classical composers from around the world. Connections Concerts is proudly sponsored by Falcetti Pianos and the Amherst Cultural Council.
