Two New Brunswick Concerts Sunday

Two concerts coming up, but you'll have to flip a coin to choose between them as they are both 4 p.m. this Sunday, March 7.

Heads: The New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra in a concert of Hungary-inspired music at the Hungarian American Athletic Center, 233 Somerset St., New Brunswick. Featured composers include Kálmán Imre, Leo Weiner, Johannes Brahms, Zoltan Kodaly, Ferenc Erkel and others.

Along with the orchestra will be soloists Lilla Heinrich, soprano, Giulia Utz, contralto, Jack Zamboni, tenor and Brandon Gaines, bass. Mark Trautman conducts.

Tickets are $20 with discounts for students and seniors. Call 732-249-6999 or buy your tickets at the door. Visit the group's website, www.newbrunswickchamberorchestra.org for more information.

Tails: Chamber trio, Tripleplay Winds, will perform a free concert of contemporary flute, clarinet, and bassoon music at Christ Church, 5 Paterson St., New Brunswick. The program, part of the church's free Evensong series for Sunday Vespers, includes work by Paquito D'Rivera, who I mention in a separate Asbury Park Press article that will be published later this week. D'Rivera is on a kind of mini-tour of the city, performing the following weekend with the Rutgers University Orchestra in New York and the Spelman Jazz ensemble at Nicholas Music Center. His Habanera from Aires Tropicales will be performed by Tripleplay on Sunday.

Other composers on the program are 20th century figure Ernst Toch, Luis F. Rodriguez Morales and Robert Mucynski.

You can visit the church's website or call the Music Office at 732.545.6262 ext. 3 for directions and information.
