Enjoy extraordinary live jazz in the Lippitt House Museum! Jazz composer/musician Francisco Pais’ new eclectic quintet debuts at the Museum in the first concert of the 2011 Hunter Music Series. Pais, known for jazz experimentation and innovation, has assembled a wide ranging group of talented musicians who will perform in this fabulously opulent setting. Joining Pais for this one-time concert: Maeve Gilchrist, an amazing harpist and Berklee grad who grew up in Scotland; Ferenc Nemeth, an award-winning percussionist who was born in Hungary, played drums at the age of three and has performed with some of the world’s great jazz legends, including Herbie Hancock; Margaret Glaspy, a frequent headliner at Boston’s Club Passim, will add her smokey voice to the mix; and Mike Thomas, an accomplished clarinetist and soprano sax player, rounds out the sound. Enjoy fabulous hors d’oeuvres and drinks by donation. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Space is limited for these intimate concerts. Early advance admission purchase is recommended.
