The Evergreen Center will present a free concert at 7:00 p.m. Friday, October 25. The event will be in Auxier Hall at the Batavia Town Hall, 65 N Second St., Batavia.
The concert will present a special appearance by Native Flute player Janice Trytten, who performs under the name Sunflower. She is a professional horn player in the Cincinnati area.
Ms. Trytten said that her earliest memory as a child in Oklahoma is building tipis, also spelled “tepees,” and making fabric “buckskin” dresses. Since the late 1980s she and her family have attended and participated in many Living History events, with focus on the 1840s fur trade era. Native American flute playing developed from the re-enactment experiences.
The concert will also feature “The Polished Brass Quintet,” a brass quintet led by Bob Coil. In addition to Bob Coil on trombone, members include Brian Huhtala and Tim Kennedy on trumpet, Mike Blevins on tuba, and Doug Jones on French Horn. The Polished Brass play for all kinds of events, including church services, weddings, festivals, and retirement home programs. Their play list includes favorites such as String of Pearls, Ain’t Misbehavin’, Satin Doll, Hello! Dolly, and Fly Me to the Moon. On the October 25 concert, The Polished Brass will perform their jazz sampler.
