St. Mary's in Holliston welcomes the Eloqui Trio

by Benjamin St. George

Music at St. Mary's in Holliston welcomes the "Elqui Trio" for a summer concert on Sunday, August 6 at 5:00 pm. An ensemble that is equally at home performing both classical and South American folk music, the Elqui Trio’s repertoire ranges from Baroque and newly commissioned pieces to folk music learned in South America by oral tradition. Andean woodwind specialist and flutist, Gonzalo Cortes, charango and viola player Carlos Boltes, and guitarist Scott Hill have forged careers as chamber musicians and soloists with choirs and orchestras throughout Europe as well as North, Central, and South America. Collectively they have premiered more than forty pieces of music, and have won competitions including the ASCAP/CMA Adventurous Programming Award and the New England International Chamber Music Competition.

At St. Mary's, Elqui Trio will present a program of varied selections from the classical and South American folk repertoire. The concert is open an free to all, and a free-will offering basket (suggested $15 donation) will be available.
