South Shore Conservatory’s (SSC) Coffee Break Concert Series (CBCS) presents The Elan Mehler Trio the fourth of six performances of its 2017/2018 season, on Tuesday, February 27, 11 am at SSC’s Ellison Center for the Arts at 64 St. George Street in Duxbury. Sponsored by The Village at Duxbury, all CBCS performances are free and open to the public.
The Elan Mehler Trio features a collision of jazz, cabaret and burlesque presented by a one-of-a-kind group of artists. Featuring Elan Mehler, piano, Simon Wilson, bass, and Dor Herskovits, drums, the trio will showcase well known jazz standards with a twist!
SSC pianist Elan Mehler has performed across Europe, including live performances on BBC London and Radio 1, headlining at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall and appearances at major festivals such as the Brecon Jazz Festival, the Hay Festival, Sete Worldwide Festival and the North Sea Jazz Festival. He has released five records internationally. For the Dutch Classical and Jazz label Challenge Records, Elan released “Being There, Here” a trio record in 2012, and his first solo record “Early Sunday Morning”, released in 2014. His three records for Gilles Peterson’s London based label Brownswood are “Scheme For Thought” 2007, “The After Suite” 2009 and “Half Seas Over” (with Adam McBride-Smith) 2010. All five records have had substantial airplay in major markets worldwide. He joined SSC’s faculty in 2015.
Casual in nature with a "come as you are" intimate atmosphere, these free performances include complimentary coffee, tea, water, light snacks and fruit to enjoy during the concert. Last year’s Coffee Break concerts were often standing room only, so audience members are encouraged to arrive at 10:30 am for a short 10:45 am overview of the performance and 11 am concert. Performances are one hour in length without intermission. After the performance audience members are invited to stay and meet the performers.
Other performances in the 2017/18 season Old Timey Swing Songs on March 27, and Around the World in Song on April 24.
