The McGill/McHale Trio's remarkable program explores dances of all kinds: from the Hungarian Furiant and the American Charleston to today's pulsating Techno. Clarinetist Anthony McGill and flutist Demarre McGill are joined by Irish pianist Michael McHale for this lush program of French and American works recorded last December at New York's 92nd Street Y, augmented with remarks and a Q&A from the artists especially for the Shriver Hall Concert Series audience. The performance will be followed by an Artist Q&A.
Two of Baltimore's strongest folk and country singers come together in perfect harmony with quiet songs of comfort and grace.

Singer-songwriter Letitia VanSant was named as one of Paste Magazine's 10 artists to watch in 2020, and BBC radio named her a "fascinating new artist."
Showtime is 7 pm ET/6 pm CT/5 pm MT/4 pm PT/11 pm GMT
