“Orcas~trations: The Three Parkers”
Tuesday, August 19 at 7:30 pm, Wednesday, August 20 at 5:30 pm
Can six hands fit on one keyboard? Brothers Jackie and Jamie Parker, and cousin Ian Parker, take turns in every possible musical combination in this musical family celebration. Strings, clarinet and voice mix and match with one Parker at a time. This star-studded concert also welcomes the return of the Gryphon Trio with Annalee Patipatanakoon, Roman Borys and Jamie Parker. The program concludes with Parker mayhem as the Steinway handles multiple Parkers at once!
The 2014 Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival takes place August 8 through 23.
