WOODBURY — The March 15 concert with Connecticut-based husband and wife duo, Handler and Levesque, presented by the Friends of the Woodbury Senior Community Center, at 2 p.m. March 15 has been canceled.
Handler and Levesque, will perform “unique, expressive arrangements that blend classical, Latin American, swing, folk, gypsy, and jazz music influences. Audiences have responded with great enthusiasm to their extraordinary sound, amusing anecdotes and the joyful spirit of their music,” according to a statement.
Their eclectic program will include a swing tune, a traditional Spanish dance, a Peruvian waltz, an Italian Tarantelle, a Middle Eastern medley, a Hungarian czardas and Celtic music in honor of Saint Patrick’s Day.
Handler & Levesque have performed more than 2,000 concerts together during the past 25 years throughout the United States and Europe.
Recent highlights include performances in England, Portugal & Spain, Eurofest in Bruchsal, Germany, including the Autorino Hall at the Bushnell Performing Arts Center in Hartford. They are also on the roster of Cantaloupe Music Productions in Manhattan, New England Foundation for the Arts, and the Connecticut Library Consortium.
They are founding members of the New American Mandolin Ensemble which formed in 2013, has performed internationally and released a CD in 2017. Judy Handler is co-founder of the Connecticut Guitar Society.
This concert is funded by the Woodbury Bethlehem Community Music Foundation, Inc. through the Thomaston Savings Bank, the Woman’s Club of Woodbury and music loving patrons. No reservations are needed, and the concert is free. However, donations are accepted.
