"Unfinished Spaces" Sunday

If you missed last week's "Unfinished Spaces" Chamber Music Concert, don't fret. There's three more Sunday evening concerts planned for the series, which will be in the new Manatee Players Performing Arts Center that's under construction.

It's amazing how rich and pleasant the acoustics are in the building. I had a chance to sit in on a rehearsal and I couldn't believe my ears.

This Sunday's (Nov. 23) intimate concert at 6 p.m. will feature Cheryl Losey on the harp, Dorothy Wu on flute, Keith Carrick on the marimba and JT Posadas on the Viola. Six musical works will be presented. There also will be an intermission.
Tickets are $30 to the event, but if you purchase rush tickets an hour before the show you can get them for $11 each based on availability. If you're a student, you can get in free.

Tidbits on the quartet
Losey: She's noted as one of the nation's top young award-winning harpists.

Wu: Co-producer of "Unfinished Spaces," Wu will be quite busy this season performing in New York, Milan, Berlin, Lucerne, Madrid, Sarasota and Kauai. She also will be on a fall tour with the Verbier Festival Orchestra.

Carrick: He's in his second season with the Sarasota Orchestra as a principal percussionist.

Posadas: Performs with the Sarasota Orchestra and will spend this season performing with the Naples Philharmonic.

Since the building is literally unfinished, attendees are encouraged to bring cushions to sit on the mezzanine tiers.
