Jackson Chamber Music Series Presents Cancoes and Lendas Brasileiras Saturday, November 17
Comprised of countertenor José Lemos, guitarist Marco Sartor and percussionist Danny Mallon, the group presents an evening of music crafted exclusively for SU. The program includes classical selections Lendas Amazonicas and Suite Popular Brasileira.
Lemos, who has performed with the series as a member of the Baltimore Consort, has received critical acclaim at venues throughout North America and Europe, including Carnegie Hall, London’s Barbican Hall and Paris’ Thèatre de Champs Elysèe. His recorded works include a production of Lully’s Psyche, which was released on the German label CPO and nominated for a 2009 Grammy Award. The Boston Globe has lauded him as singing “with a big, colorful, sexy tone and almost recklessly brilliant coloratura.”
Mallon has recorded with musicians including Liza Minnelli and Maureen McGovern, and at venues including Alice Tully Hall, the Library of Congress and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. As a member of the Charleston (SC) Pro Musica, he recorded two albums and toured the South of France, the latter filmed for a 2002 PBS documentary. As a freelance artist, his work has appeared in TV and film scores, as well as on radio programs nationwide.
Sponsored by the Office of Cultural Affairs, admission is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-543-6271 or visit the SU Web site at www.salisbury.edu.
