Sergio A. Mims: Ozy.com: A Black Harpist Makes Classical Music for the Moment; Charles Overton is a rising star on the Boston music scene
Charles Overton Ozy By Jed Gottlieb November 9, 2020 WHY YOU SHOULD CARE Because a Black male harpist is exceedingly rare Charles Overton is a rising star on the Boston music scene thanks in part to his new, original composition in response to the killing of George Floyd. The versatile 26-year-old wants to be both the Yo-Yo Ma and Herbie Hancock of the harp. Harpist Charles Overton had started to rebound from the coronavirus pandemic curtailing his work when Minneapolis police officers killed George Floyd. With the U.S. hit by the relentless scourges of COVID-19 and violence against African Americans, Overton felt distant from the bright, complex music he produced with his harp. “I just didn’t have it in myself to be making music at that time,” he says. “I thought, […]

H. Leslie Adams: The Gilmore presents Dominic Cheli, pianist performing H. Leslie Adams' Etude No. 2 in A flat Minor from Piano Etudes, Book 2
H. Leslie Adams November 29 Announcement The Gilmore presents Dominic Cheli, pianist performing H. Leslie Adams' Etude No. 2 in A flat Minor from Piano Etudes, Book 2 (Originally telecast Sunday, November 29, 2020 at 4 pm) ________________________________ This work was played on "Rising Star Series" featuring Dominic Cheli. I thought it might be serviceable for my work to be clipped and perhaps used for marketing purposes (if that's possible). Incidentally I have a Ticket Number 589413, which may or may not work for you. There is an admission fee that indicates the artist is indeed considered "rising and coming" (professionally). In event you can't get through to the telecast, know it will be available for several weeks. Leslie
