INNOVATA BRASS & PERCUSSION with guest pianist, Sanae Kanda, will perform on Sunday, November 3, 2019 at 3:00 PM at The First Church in Swampscott Congregational, 40 Monument Avenue.
Led by artistic director and tuba player Michael S. Milnarik, INNOVATA BRASS & PERCUSSION performances have been described as “spectacular and moving, a journey into a wide variety of real music played by expert musicians”. All of the musicians have performed around the world including with such renowned organizations as the Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Boston Pops, Boston Ballet, Key West Symphony, Springfield Symphony, the Jazz Composer’s Alliance Orchestra and other world class ensembles. The wide range of experience that each person brings to the group complements the versatile repertoire INNOVATA presents.
The group will be joined on the piano by Dr. Sanae Kanda, who enjoys a varied career as composer, pianist, arranger, and educator. Music written by Kanda exclusively for INNOVATA will be featured on the concert, and selections will include music as diverse as Baroque and classical transcriptions to Dixieland and movie-esque original music by Kanda.
This concert is presented by the First Church Soli Deo Gloria Concert Series and is free and open to the public. The concert is supported in part by free-will donations and the Kay Jauron Fund. For more information, call 781-592-6081, visit thefirstchurch.org or the church’s Facebook page.
