The 4th Friday @ the Arts Café evening on February 25, 2022 starring the Academy Project has been cancelled due to forecasted weather. This concert will be rescheduled for a later date.
The Marlborough Arts Center hosts the Academy Project trio on February 25 for the monthly 4th Friday @ the Arts Café at 231 North Main Street in Marlborough CT. The Academy Project is made up of professional musicians who have graduated from the Colchester Bacon Academy’s music program, and have received a degree in Music Performance at the university level. They take great pride in their Bacon Academy background and their goal is to create more opportunities to bring live music of all genres to audiences everywhere. Leading the trio is Erin Vivero, an award winning flutist, recording artist, and flute teacher. She is a winner of the National Flute Association’s Professional Flute Choir competition, a member of the Connecticut Flute Orchestra and a semi-finalist in the professional chamber ensemble category for The American Prize. As an entertainer, model, and actor she is often seen on local commercials as well as being a principal actor for the North Pole Express. Harry Kliewe is a highly sought after multiple woodwind player chamber musician and teacher based in Hartford. He regularly performs throughout Connecticut in pit orchestras including Goodspeed Opera House, Playhouse on Park, The Norma Terris Theater, and Ivoryton Playhouse. He is also the soprano saxophonist and one of the founding members of the Resurgam Quartet based in Connecticut. Sean McCormick on alto saxophone was involved in the UConn Wind Ensemble, Saxophone Quartet and Marching Band. Sean was also the alto saxophonist at the 42nd International US Navy Band Saxophone Symposium in January 2020. At present he is also student teaching at Bolton High School.
This trio brings all of these awards, their ongoing studies in music, and also their sense of humor which makes every performance an interactive experience and a delight to the senses.
Admission is $10 at the door. Doors open at 7 p.m., the performance begins at 7:30. Masks are required and seating is set up for social distancing. The Arts Center is fully assessable and there is ample parking.
