ACE Concert Series: Blue Madeiras
Join us for a live performance from Blue Madeiras, as part of Arts Center East’s Concert Series!
When four of the Hartt School’s busiest performer/educators started jamming together, they discovered a most original sound. Before long, Blue Madeiras was born. Each musician brings his musical experiences, from jazz and klezmer to traditional music from North and South America to this exciting new band.
With their updated versions of Brazilian classics to Luke’s many originals, Blue Madeiras has found its voice, providing smooth, tropical rhythms for Gonzalo and Alex to engage in musical interplay of the highest order. You’ll even hear some Chopin and R&B in the mix!

In the late 19th and early 20th Century, Currier & Ives were known for their quintessential New England prints, from The American national game of baseball to American Homestead Winter. But what is it about New England that makes it such a charming artistic subject? In this New England Charm exhibit, we want to showcase visual depictions of New England and what makes it a unique and distinct part of America, from the costal and woodland landscapes, to its Colonial or contemporary architecture, to the wildlife and the weather. What says New England Charm to you?
