The Plumbing Museum is pleased to announce a new concert series that will showcase Boston’s emerging music performers and composers.
Conceived as a community outreach project, Music of the Pipes concert series brings together a wide variety of musical genres to provide family-friendly, educational, traditional and experimental music programming in an open and fun venue space of the Plumbing Museum.
Curated by Antonina Styczen, an internationally award-winning flute player, the first series will feature the flute as a solo instrument in chamber music and in a big ensemble. The program will include music of different genres from the famous Christmas tune “The Nutcracker Suite” by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky – in a special arrangement for flute orchestra, to beautiful melodies of Philip Glass “Facades” for two flutes and string quartet, and Jane Rigler’s “Two Seaming” exploring unusual pairing of flute and voice. The program will also feature the premiere of a commissioned piece by a young, Spanish composer, Pedro Osuna, for flute and string quartet.
“We are excited to provide a new variety of music to our neighborhood and expand our community outreach initiatives. Through imaginative programming, traditional chamber music, jazz, and new compositions, we hope to make connections with musicians, composers, and listeners of all ages,” says Sasha Parfenova, Museum Program Manager.
The opening concert will take place on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 4 p.m. at the Plumbing Museum. The event is free and open to the public, but space is limited! Please reserve your tickets online to guarantee admission:
