Canta Libre Chamber Ensemble
arranged by the Music Advisory Committee
Sunday October 8, 2017

CANTA LIBRE (“Sing Freely”), a renowned quintet of flute, harp and strings, was founded in 2002 by flutist Sally Shorrock to foster the performance and enjoyment of music composed specifically for harp quintet.
Considered experts in this ephemeral, rare style of chamber music with its origins in France, Canta Libre was recently featured at The American Harp Society 50th Anniversary National Conference, has appeared at Lincoln Center, on WNYC at The Green Space, The Music Festival of the Hamptons, Barge Music, Concerts at One at Trinity Church in Manhattan, WLIW TV, National Public Radio of Long Island, The Brooklyn Public Library, and Bruno Walter Auditorium, among other prestigious venues.
The Great Neck Library Music Advisory Committee, now in its 47th year, is co-chaired by founding member Gabe Chieco and Michele Ganz, and includes members Mary Dehn and Estelle Pace. This all volunteer committee of Great Neck residents represents a wide range of musical experience and performance.
This performance is dedicated in memoriam to MAC member Beatrice Aubrey and GNL librarian Jonathan Aubrey.
