The Tavern of Fine Arts presents pianist David Allen Flowers, cellist Amanda Mendez, and violinist Mark Timmerman performing "Coffee Stains" by David Allen Flowers on Saturday, July 11, at 6 PM. "'Coffee Stains' is a collection of character pieces that were designed to be performed in the busy atmospheres of a café or a lounge. The size of the ensemble is conducive to a more intimate musical environment, one that the composer hopes will engage an audience and contradict the more rigid-seeming protocol of a standard concert performance. The evening will move from images of whirring machinery, to vivid nostalgia, and even into day dreaming as the music explores the different scenes one might experience while enjoying a cup of coffee." The Tavern of Fine Arts is at 313 Belt in the Debaliviere Place neighborhood. For more information: tavern-of-fine-arts.blogspot.com.
