Joining Krannert Uncorked this week, the 11-piece band, Knights of Cabiria, will play high-powered music from all over the world: Bartok, Bechet, sambas, and Stravinsky not to mention boleros, son montunos, waltzes, polkas, rocked-out central European dance numbers, and Fellini film scores by the great Nino Rota. The music is compelling, virtuosic, and rocking. Band members include Sol Baer (clarinet), Tom Faux (guitar), Todd Gallagher (bass), Amanda Harris (vocals), Sally Hoffman (flutes), James Hutchinson (trombone) Robin Kearton (violin/viola), Bob McEntyre (drums), Sal Percoco (trumpets), Chris Petterson (cello), and Maria Del Toro Gomez (violin).
Wine samples selected and served by Radio Maria Restaurant.
