Sunset Concert at the Eustis Estate: Zahili and Zayra

Thursday, August 15, 2019 -
6:30pm to 8:30pm
Free Event

Join us for the second of two free summer concerts on the expansive lawn of the Eustis Estate, presented with Mandorla Music Series. Come early with a picnic and explore the exhibition Changing Landscape: Sculpture at the Eustis Estate, then enjoy music as the sun sets. The grounds will be open at 6:30 and the music will start at 7:00.

Pianist and composer Zahili Gonzalez Zamora’s work is a fusion of bebop, funk, and soul as well as the musical traditions of her native Cuba. Percussionist Zayra Pola showed her musical gifts early, propelling her to begin her deep study of the rhythm traditions of Puerto Rico while still a child. The two met while students at Berklee College of Music and have now played and sung together in various contexts for years.

Alcohol is not permitted. Refreshments are available for sale. Please bring your own lawn chairs and blankets. Dogs on leashes are welcome. In the event of rain, the concert will be indoors. Please call 617-994-6600 for more information.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Milton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
