July 25: Charles Overton & Peter Barnick. Charles Overton is a Boston-based harpist and performer of classical, jazz, and world music. He began his harp studies at the age of ten, and was afforded the opportunity at an early age to perform internationally in such notable venues as Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. He performs regularly in symphonic settings with the Boston Pops, the BSO, and others, as well as appearing in jazz settings, both leading his own bands and collaborating with others. He’ll be joined for this performance by longtime collaborator Peter Barnick on drums. Charles and Peter began making music together as teenagers, when both were students at the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan.
August 15: Zahili Gonzalez Zamora & Zayra Pola. Pianist and composer Zahili Gonzalez Zamora’s work is a fusion of bebop, funk, and soul as well as the musical traditions of her native Cuba. Percussionist Zayra Pola showed her musical gifts early, propelling her to begin her deep study of the rhythm traditions of Puerto Rico while still a child. The two met while students at Berklee College of Music and have now played and sung together in various contexts for years.
