CHRIS WHITE, actor
MICHAEL PAROLA, percussion
TAHIRAH WHITTINGTON, cello
Tonight we are joined by actor, Chris White and the Core Ensemble percussionist Michael Parola, pianist Hsiao-Ling, and cellist Tahirah Whittington.
The Core Ensemble, formed in 1993, has travelled throughout the United States and across the world. Broadening the definition of chamber music, the ensemble has been the catalyst in the creation of several chamber music theatre works weaving narrative and theatre into the chamber music experience. The Boston Globe described the Core as often formidable, always intelligent, ultimately compelling.
This performance promises to be a fascinating and unique glimpse of the Harlem Renaissance through musical theatre.
