Pianist Anna de Prospero and clarinetist Steve Marr will present “Clarinet/Piano Reflections” during the Chamber Music Series concert at noon Wednesday, May 12, 2021, at Ancient City Baptist Church.
A classically trained pianist originally from Gainesville, Florida, De Prospero’s musical interests are wide ranging. At her performances, audiences can hear anything from classical to classic rock, and from jazz to contemporary Christian music.
After beginning his career in the U.S. Army Band in 1971, Marr attended Michigan State University and served in the U.S. Air Force for 21 years. For his second act, Marr returned to college and earned a Master of Music from Southern Illinois University. In 2015, he accepted a position as Artistic Director/Conductor for the St. Augustine Youth Orchestra. He is also principal clarinetist for the St. Augustine Orchestra.
The duo's musical performance on May 12 will include “Suite” from the Victorian Kitchen Garden for Clarinet and Piano by Reade; “Jamaican Rumba” for Clarinet and Piano by Benjamin, and “Downton Abbey Suite” for Piano.
