For the third year in a row the St. James Church mid summer concert will happen in downtown Dartmouth. The Rendezvous Quartet will fill this historic church with acoustic music from Cuba, Brazil, Italy and beyond. Augusto-Pedro and Alison Enriquez will have a treat for the classical music lovers. Augusto Enriquez will raise the roof another couple of inches with power of his voice a cappella! Jeff Goodspeed will bring a trio of horns to the mix and Alison will blend it together with her unique harmonies and lead vocals.
Jazz musician Jeff Goodspeed creates harmony between Nova Scotia, Cuba
A veteran Halifax musician has been promoting harmony between the music scenes in Nova Scotia and Cuba for more than two decades. Jeff Goodspeed has enjoyed an enviable career as a composer, arranger, saxophonist, flautist and woodwind player.
The Los Primos Project has been running small ensembles for close to 20 years. Motivated students, rehearsing in small ensembles, with professional musicians learn to play music in all styles and learn to improvise with ease. When the first few groups from our project went to Cuba, they became known as the Canadian Primos.
