World Music Concert to Benefit St. Columbkille Partnership School: Oct. 27
Chestnut Hill, MA (October 2011) -- A world music benefit concert featuring a diverse group of musicians — including a Brazilian guitarist and a Celtic harpist — will take place on Oct. 27 in support of the St. Columbkille Partnership School, a Catholic school administered through an innovative collaboration between St. Columbkille Parish, the Archdiocese of Boston and Boston College.
Highlighting the event, which takes place from 7-9 p.m. in St. Columbkille Church at 321 Market Street in Brighton, will be a performance by Rogerio Dentello [rogeriodentello.com], a classical guitarist and protégé of some of the finest contemporary musicians in Brazil, and Celtic harpist Maeve Gilchrist [maevegilchristmusic.com], a Scottish native whose playing combines traditional, contemporary and world influences.
Also appearing will be violinist Michael James, a fellow at Boston College’s Roche Center for Catholic Education, and fourth-grade pianist Libby Wu, one of three St. Columbkille students who performed at the “BC Idol” showcase earlier this year.
Admission is $10, free for children 12 and under; tickets will be sold at the door. A reception will follow. For more information, call Mary Battles at 617-254-3110, ext.105.
