Palaver Strings is a musician-led string ensemble and nonprofit organization founded in 2014 by young musicians in the Boston area. Palaver has performed at the Kennedy Center, Bay Chamber Concerts, the Hammond Concert Series, a celebration of the Lullaby Project at Carnegie Hall, and has toured the East and West Coasts of the United States. This fall Palaver will begin its second season as Ensemble in Residence at the Boston Center for the Arts and continue its longstanding residency at Bay Chamber Concerts in Rockport, ME.
As a musician-led ensemble, Palaver is driven by collaborative processes, through which its Co-Artistic Directors share musical and administrative leadership. While each member of the ensemble brings unique experiences to the table, they share a passion for taking classical music beyond the concert hall to engage with new and diverse audiences. In these personal and unconventional settings, Palaver uses music to address social issues, promote education and healing, and inspire peers and community to support the arts.
Culomba is a versatile vocal trio based in Boston. Sophie Michaux, Adam Simon, and Lysander Jaffe draw from their diverse experiences as singers, instrumentalists, composers, and travelers, performing powerful polyphonic music in an intimate trio setting. Their eclectic repertoire includes folk harmony singing from Georgia, Corsica, Ukraine, and the Balkans, eastern European dance tunes, early music, original compositions, and more. Culomba just recently returned from a two-month European tour with Northern Harmony and released an EP, available here:
a ticketed, classical-ish performance series taking place the first sunday night of every month at the aeronaut taproom in somerville, shining light on the ridiculous pleasure of collective listening. no stodginess. no competing sound. just sweet, shared silence, beautiful beers, and beautiful people. please stay for an after-party with the artists.
The pindrop sessions are offered in partnership with WGBH, Public Broadcasting for New England.
