The Parlor City Flute Ensemble will be performing at the Kilmer Mansion for An Evening of Americana Music.
The Parlor City Flute Ensemble was founded by Melanie Valencia in 2013 to promote the rich history and depth that the repertoire of flute ensemble playing offers. The group is made up of four flutists who perform on the piccolo, E-flat soprano, C-flute, alto or bass flutes depending on the program chosen.
The flutists for the Kilmer Concert are Melanie Valencia, Molly Drum, Jamie Dybas, and Wendy Stafford, and they will be sharing music from many genres: jazz, classical, folk, Americana, Brazilian, rock, movie and cartoon, gospel, marches, modern, and popular.
Proceeds from the concert support the Kilmer Mansion Campaign. The 1898 Kilmer Mansion is a historic and architectural treasure and is available to the public through tours, events, and rentals. At 121 years of age, it needs considerable work to restore and preserve it. The most urgent
need is to restore the porches, terraces, and chimneys which are at risk of collapse at any time.
An Evening of Americana Music with The Parlor City Flute Ensemble led by Melanie Valencia in the Kilmer Mansion is on Thursday, August 22 at 7 p.m. That’s on 9 Riverside Drive in Binghamton. Tickets are $15, students get in free. For more information about the mansion click here.
