Darlington Arts Center is pleased to announce the opening reception for the upcoming art exhibition, Maia Palmer: Untold Stories, from 6 – 8pm on Thursday, June 15.

Palmer’s work is visually varied, ranging from landscapes, to portraits, to dictionary drawings. All of these artworks are inspired by her local surroundings.

Her works capture moments frozen in time, suggesting hidden narratives and untold stories.

Delaware Chamber Music Festival FREE Jazz Concert
Jun 24 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The Delaware Chamber Music Festival (DCMF) 32nd Season’s special addition to this season is a collaborative jazz-themed performance with Light Up The Queen Foundation’s Boysie Lowery Living Jazz Residency directed by Jonathan Whitney. “I’m curious to experience the works that will be composed for us by these young artists,” says Barbara Govatos, DCMF Artistic Director. “We literally won’t know what we are playing and in what combinations we’ll be asked to play until perhaps the week before our first rehearsal with them.”

Govatos notes that it’s exciting for her and members of the Festival Quartet to work in this fresh, unpredictable way and afford young composers the opportunity to hear and rehearse their works with professional artists and present first performances to discerning audiences. The jazz concert will not only feature Boysie Lowery students but also the Festival Quartet, guest pianist Julie Nishimura, guest double bassist Douglas Mapp and guest contralto Tina Betz, who will perform on Whitney’s new arrangement, Strange Fruit for strings.

The free jazz concert will be held Saturday, June 24, 4:00pm at The Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew, 719 N. Shipley Street in downtown Wilmington.

The regular Delaware Chamber Music Festival series dates will be held at Wilmington Friends Lower School. Tickets for the Festival may be ordered by downloading an order form at dcmf.org. Checks and order forms may be mailed to the Festival at P.O. Box 3537, Wilmington DE, 19807. There are no advance online ticket sales, but tickets also will be available for purchase via cash or check at the door of each performance.

For full season details, visit www.dcmf.org or call the Festival Hotline at 302.442.0572.
