Hat Trick will give the NFA premiere of their commission by Miguel del Aguila, Submerged.
Founded in 2002 at Grey Towers National Historic Site in Milford, PA, the birthplace of the American conservation movement, Kindred Spirits Arts Programs sees its goal in awakening, through music and art, a greater appreciation and sensitivity to the beauty and value of nature. The organization achieves this by presenting established and emerging artists in musical and other events in a variety of settings - often collaborative ventures with other arts and educational organizations. KSAP places special emphasis on bringing performances and master classes to children in the schools.
Hat Trick will perform during the afternoons of October 4th and 5th at the Delaware Valley High and Dingman-Delaware Middle. On the evening of October 5th, Hat Trick will give a full concert at the Good Shepherd Episcopl Church in Milford, PA.
You’d have to be a first-order music geek to know about this trio. It features the head of the Berklee strings department, Dr. David Wallace. A Juilliard instructor for a bit, he left to head up Berklee because he loved the idea of all the musical worlds colliding, crashing, blending and coming out in brave new ways. There aren’t too many places in the world where this happens, and we’re lucky to be right down the extended road from one of the world’s most important places where this kind of creativity happens. You’d also have to have your head in the sand to not know that this blending is where all music is heading.Doc Wallace has played just about every musical genre that has a name, and most that don’t. I guess it falls into the category of alt/classical. I guess. I can’t really describe it, and that’s why you need to hear it. Seldom does something get me this excited. Get ready. Adults the usual $25, kids high school and under, $5.00
