Summer Concert Series finales slated
Join the Edmonds Arts Commission for Summer Concerts in the Parks, with Toy Box Trio, Tuesday, Aug. 27, in the Hazel Miller Plaza and Alma y Azucar on Thursday, Aug. 29, in the Hazel Miller Plaza.
Toy Box Trio – Noon Tuesday, Aug. 27, in the Hazel Miller Plaza
Through the whimsical combination of concertina, toy-piano and double bass, Toy-Box Trio enables audiences to experience through-composed music in an entirely new way.
A natural extension of the classical piano trio--a staple in chamber repertoire--extended into the modern age, the Trio infuses the concert hall experience with a world of dusty old music boxes, haunted carnivals, and a "neo-cabaret" aesthetic.
Toy-Box Trio lulls energized crowds into silent, active listening as they create an intimate atmosphere peppered with jokes, factoids, and a relaxed presentation.
The show begins at noon in the Hazel Miller Plaza at 5th and Maple in downtown Edmonds. The Hazel Miller Concerts are sponsored by the Hazel Miller Foundation.
Alma y Azucar – 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29, in the Hazel Miller Plaza
Alma y Azúcar brings you an exquisite and passionate selection of Latin styles and flavors.
Playing a wide range of Latin music beyond the traditional salsa, the new group features instrumentation including violin, trumpet and tres (Cuban guitar).
Band leader Alma Villegas started her professional music career in 2001 when she was asked to perform with two of Seattle's most popular Latin salsa music ensembles.
Her experiences in these two ensembles reconnected her to her youth in Mexico and led her to create a band that offered a more diverse selection including the traditional bolero (Latin ballad), cha-chas, mid-tempo Latin jazz standards, a variety of Cuban rhythms, salsa and bossa novas.
The show begins at 5 p.m. in the Hazel Miller Plaza at 5th and Maple in downtown Edmonds. The Hazel Miller Concerts are sponsored by the Hazel Miller Foundation.
Concerts are presented by the Edmonds Arts Commission on behalf of the Edmonds City Council and are accessible to persons with disabilities.
