Mayo Clinic Rosemary and Meredith Willson Harmony for Mayo Program presents Mazer and Smith in concert
ROCHESTER, Minn. — The public is invited to enjoy Mazer and Smith in concert as part of the Rosemary and Meredith Willson Harmony for Mayo Program. The free performance will be on Thursday, Sept. 5, from 12:10 to 1 p.m. in Barbara Woodward Lips Atrium, subway level, Rochester Methodist Hospital, Charlton Building,10 Third Ave. NW.
The harp and woodwinds music of Mazer and Smith offers richness in melody, rhythm and sonority that transcends the boundaries of classical and jazz genres. Susan Mazer plays the electroacoustic concert grand harp and Dallas Smith plays bansuri (bamboo flute), flute and clarinet. Their music has been heard on NPR, the Discovery Channel, and PBS.
Mazer and Smith are co-founders of Healing HealthCare Systems, which produces the C.A.R.E. Channel. This 24-hour relaxation programming is broadcast on the Mayo network on channel 63 (standard definition) and channel 77 (high definition).
Sponsored by Mayo Clinic Center for Humanities in Medicine, the Rosemary and Meredith Willson Harmony for Mayo Program is coordinated by the Choral Arts Ensemble of Rochester. The series is generously funded by the late Rosemary Willson in memory of her husband, Meredith Willson, who wrote the Broadway musical "The Music Man." The gift is made in gratitude for the couple's care at Mayo Clinic. More information can be found onlinewww.mayoclinic.org/humanities-in-medicine.
