In addition to being able to learn more about the above ABI service providers, support BCBIA’s work, enjoy food and wine with your friends and colleagues; enjoy listening to the talents of the musical duo Sostenuto and accompanists.
Sostenuto meaning "sustained" is not only a way of playing music for musicians Anna Lumiere and Serena Eades, it is a way of living and creating lasting beauty within the world. While Sostenuto's sound is at times sultry and rich, it is never far from light and slightly silly. Playingthe violin and accordion from Argentinean Tango to Brazilian Choro, French Musette to contemporary original works, Sostenuto is a worthwhile treat for the senses, and will be accompanied by young violinists Noah Ord and Jasmine Fitzsimmons of Gibsons. Noah and Jasmine have been playing with fiddle group Bad to the Bow for many years. They also can be heard playing at local farmers' markets and other events with various musicians.
Your contribution is greatly appreciated and will help BCBIA to provide support for people with acquired brain injuries.
