Mélomanie + Minas

Mélomanie + Minas

Wilmington ensemble Mélomanie pairs Baroque music performed on period instruments with contemporary compositions, highlighting connections across centuries. They frequently commission new works and have built relationships with many living composers, including Brazilian composer Sergio Roberto de Oliveira. Mélomanie is Tracy Richardson, harpsichord; Kimberly Reighley, flute; Douglas McNames, cello; Donna Fournier, viola da gamba; and Christof Richter, violin.

Minas, formed by Orlando Haddad and Patricia King, takes Brazilian music to new realms, creating a sound that is imaginative, evocative and intimate. Minas composes original music for voice, piano, guitar and a range of accompanying instruments with roots in classical, jazz, Big Band and Brazilian folk music.

In this brunch concert, Mélomanie and Minas explore the diverse landscape of Brazilian music, from classical to pop to jazz, with world premiere compositions by both Sergio and Orlando.

Since 2008, LiveConnections has served as a creator and curator of innovative, cross-genre music experiences. Our ClassicAlive series “The Collaborators” expands how classical music is experienced by breaking boundaries of repertoire, collaboration and atmosphere in innovative concerts designed to attract both new audiences and long-time classical fans.
