Music for Miles on Mothers' Day at Waterloo Arts

The Trillium Woodwind Trio will perform on Sunday, May 8 at 4 pm at Waterloo Arts, 15605 Waterloo Road; 216-692-9500; The event is free.

The April concert (complete with borrowed Steinway!) will be hard to beat, but the Trillium Trio – who played our very first M4M concert back in 2011, and who are all mothers themselves (six musical degrees, six children) will give it a good shot. Gayle Getts, flute; Emily Lada, clarinet; Lydia Byndas, bassoon, will play Bach, Beethoven and Mozart, along with some entertaining musical surprises - A Whole New World (from Disney's Aladdin), for instance, and “some fun music related to the current events going on in our fabulous city of Cleveland.”

Lane Cooper’s show will still be in the gallery, a fascinating background: flowery colors clothe sedate women aiming guns; a Venetian blind effect partly hides, partly reveals hard-to-interpret scenes. Bring your mother for a concert, an art show and a little something in the adjoining Callaloo Café. As always, the concert begins at 4 pm and includes a short intermission. The mood is casual, the musicians are chatty.

May will be the last concert of the Spring season, but Music for Miles will return in September with the Tower City Brass Quintet, followed by the Silver Keys Clarinets in October and Joe Parker on sitar in November. CityMusic’s chamber group will also return in the autumn; the October soloist is Japanese and lives in Paris; it will be an interesting program.

M4M concerts are presented with the support of Local 4 Music Fund, the Music Performance Trust Fund, the Waterloo Arts Friends’ Committee, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, and Ohio Arts Council.

Waterloo Arts is at 15605 Waterloo Road, corner of E156.; 216-692-9500.
