THIRD SUNDAY FEBRUARY 19 CONCERT
Latin jazz harpist Patrice Fisher will perform with her group Arpa in the Third Sunday Concert Series at Christ Episcopal Church in Covington on Sunday, February 19, 2017. The program begins at 5. Doors open at 4:30.
Performer of Celtic music and Director of the New Orleans Celtic Harp Ensemble, Fisher favors the music of Brazil and Cuba, saying that, not only is the harp ‘comfortable’ harmonically with the music, but that she is drawn to the rhythmic complexities and syncopations: "that’s what makes you want to dance.”
A graduate of Tulane University and University of New Orleans, Fisher lives in New Orleans where she has been composing and performing since the 1980’s. She has performed for many years at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and the French Quarter festival. She performs regularly throughout the world as a guest artist with international jazz musicians. She has also appeared in Germany, Brazil, Mexico, US, Canada, Guatemala, Bolivia and many other locations in international jazz festivals with her group, Arpa. Patrice has 15 CDs of original music, the latest being "Resilience."
All concerts in the series are free, open to the public, and followed by a wine and hors d'oeuvres reception where the audience may meet the performers. Christ Church is located at 120 S. New Hampshire in Covington at the entrance to Bogue Falaya Park.
