James Pellerite, The Extraordinaires, Voces Novae

This week the story of a classical musician turned native, a psalm at the heart of Voces Novae's new concert, and busking with the Extraordinaires.

This week on Artworks:

Hear how James Pellerite’s nearly six decades of classical flute performing and teaching were just a precursor to his life’s calling, the Native American flute.

Also on the program,

Yaël Ksander reports from WonderLab, where fire-dancers, glassblowers and metalsmiths sparked patrons’ imaginations about the art-science connection.

The ensemble Voces Novae explores the many ways grief and loss are expressed through settings of  a particular Psalm text.

And an eclectic band of musicians set up on a Kirkwood Avenue street corner to entice onlookers to their upcoming concert.
