Free music series returns to Encinitas

January 5, 2018 by  

For the seventh year, the City of Encinitas Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department is presenting a free series of musical concerts at the Encinitas Library. The series is underway now, and will continue weekly for another four weeks.

The concerts are on Wednesday afternoons at the Encinitas Library, located at 540 Cornish Drive, from noon until 12.45 pm; the artists who appear are all professional musicians.

Next Wednesday, January 10, the Jazz Bend will appear, “bending” jazz with other popular genres such as rock, blues, pop, and Latin. The trio features former Fatburger members Mark Hunter and Kevin Koch on electric bass and drums respectively, while Peter Pupping is on guitar.

The next week, January 17, entertainment will be provided by the Villa-Lobos International Chamber Music Festival. This five-piece ensemble will perform works by Villa-Lobos, Alberto Ginastera, and Liduino Pitombeira. They will also premiere a work by Karl Pasch.

On January 24, the Villa-Lobos group returns, this time to perform works by Lalo Schifrin, Astor Piazzolla, Tom Jobim, and Peter Sprague.

The final concert, on January 31, features the Trio Céleste—cello, piano, and violin. The artists will play works by Dvorak and Haydn. Further information about all the concerts can be found on the city’s website.

Events like this can be made more enjoyable if organizers distribute flyers that describe both the artists and the works they plan to perform.
