BARTLETT — Mountain Top Music will be presenting clarinet and saxophone virtuosos Peter and Will Anderson with guitarist Felix Lemerle for the fourth year in a row at a beautiful mountaintop home just off Glen Ledge Road in Bartlett on Sunday, Aug. 18, at 4 p.m.
The concert features “The Magic of Benny Goodman” and is open to the public. Hosted by Diane McGregor of Badger Realty, attendees are invited to arrive as early as 3 p.m. to tour this fabulous multimillion-dollar Adirondack-style home, which is currently for sale, and enjoy the spectacular mountain views from this unique venue before the concert begins.
Called “remarkable” by The Wall Street Journal and “delightful, dazzling and infectious” by Backstage magazine, Peter and Will, identical twin brothers, are known for their exciting arrangements of jazz classics and fresh original music.
Hailing from Washington, D.C., when their talents were recognized internationally as teenagers, they attended Juilliard in New York City where they currently reside.
They have headlined at Birdland, The Blue Note and Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. With an extensive touring schedule, they have also appeared at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the New Orleans Jazz Festival, the Sarasota Florida Jazz Festival, and many other important musical venues.
A year ago, they continued their popular series of summer concerts at New York’s Symphony Space each themed to cover one of America’s Greatest Composers including Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Hoagy Carmichael and Jimmy Van Heusen. Mountain Top is delighted to welcome them back again this year to the valley with a special new Benny Goodman program featuring works such as “Stompin’ at the Savoy,” “Moonglow,” “Body and Soul” and “Sing Sing Sing.”
The concert will benefit the many students of Mountain Top Music by helping to keep local musical lesson costs at affordable rates.
Tickets are $35 (students and children are free) and advance reservations are requested.
