THE MARLEY/POHORSKI/BURN JAZZ TRIO — Unique Jazz
The Marley/Pohorski/Burn Jazz Trio came together as like-minded musicians who were searching for something more substantial than playing casual gigs with interchangeable lineups. Their goal was to develop their own repertoire and unique sonic palette and in the process create music which offers audiences something identifiable and distinctive. With a song list that includes fresh takes on old standards, and a sprinkling of original compositions, Stephen Marley (drums) Doug Pohorski (bass) and Terrigal Burn (piano) continue to explore the synergistic possibilities and subtle nuances of trio jazz.

ALBANY CONSORT — Classical Music
Halloween marks the transition from the light part of the year into the dark part. How better to celebrate than with music that reflects darkness, strangeness and profound sadness? But don’t think that this means sparse or depressing music. On the contrary, composers have always been itching to express fully and vigorously any human experience they could find. Works by Vivaldi, Rebel, Tartini, Nan, and Dowland will be presented in this concert.
