Martha/Mary Concert Series 2022-23

For more than a decade, organizers of the Martha/Mary Concerts, led by artistic founding director Paul Posnak, have been presenting award-winning musical artists. Concerts are $10 to $15 per person. The 2022-23 season runs Sept. 25, 2022, through April 23, 2023, and includes six concerts, at Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Miami. The concerts are also offered live on YouTube.

Here’s the schedule:

Sunday, September 25, 6 p.m. BAROQUE JAZZ CLUB PRESENTS: C4 TRIO

Latin Grammy winner C4TRIO fuses Venezuelan folk music (three quatros and electric bass) with contemporary jazz to show why they have earned a Latin Grammy. Traditional rhythms are complemented with non-traditional harmonies, improvisations, mixed genres and rhythms.

This is an outdoor concert on La Merced Plaza at Corpus Christi Catholic Church, 3220 Northwest 7th Avenue, Miami, FL 33127

Tickets are $10. Kids 12 and younger are free.

Friday, October 21, 7:30 p.m. VOCES8 with FROST CHORALE
