Wednesdays, December 5, 12 & 19 | 12:30 – 1:30pm

Celebrate the holiday season with a lunchtime concert series in the lobby of the Grace Building, featuring talented local musicians performing a variety of seasonal favorites.

Featured Musicians:

+ December 5 | Aerial Acoustics

+ December 12 | Ilya Shneyveys & Jake Shulman-Ment

+ December 19 | Chiara Fasi


The guitar duo Aerial Acoustics has been delighting audiences for over 25 years with their spirited original and cover instrumentals. Described as “electrifyingly acoustic,” Dorothy Wagner and Dennis Smith play complex arrangements of classic tunes, as well as original compositions, infused with elements of rock, jazz, classical and Spanish guitar.

Ilya Shneyveys (accordion) and Jake Shulman-Ment (violin) are two of the leading contemporary musicians breathing new life into old-world klezmer, the celebratory music of East European Jews. This lunchtime performance for Hanukkah will be filled with soulful Hasidic spirituals and rollicking dance melodies.

Violinist, Vocalist, and Arranger Chiara Fasi breathes new life into traditional live string performances. She has shared the stage and recorded with notable artists such as Miley Cyrus, Solange, Dua Lipa, Jay-Z, and John Legend, to name a few. A talented arranger, composer, and producer, Chiara has composed & arranged strings for numerous projects.
