The Crocker Art Museum’s Classical Concert series presents Sacramento’s Trio MoD: Kuper, Pittman and Tau. The small ensemble, which debuted February 2014, incorporates jazz, classical, and spiritual styles into their arrangements.

Trio MoD (pronounced ‘mode’) features Maquette Kuper on flute, Deborah Pittman on clarinet and Native American Flute, and baritone Omari Tau as the vocalist.

Longtime resident of Davis and graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music, Maquette Kuper currently plays principal flute for the Auburn Symphony Orchestra. She’s also the founder and director of the Davis Youth Flute Choir, a group that’s travelled internationally for performances in Japan and South Korea.

Omari Tau currently works as the Director of Opera and Theatre at Sacramento State University. This Sacramento educator, director, and performer just finished up with a nine-year, international tour of Disney’s The Lion King, performing as the character Bonzai.

Deborah Pittman is a recently retired Sacramento State clarinet professor, also specializing in the study of American Musical Theater. Pittman’s multi-media work, Big Dreams, Small Shoulders premiered at the Crocker January 2013. Her project focused on Norman Rockwell’s artistic portrayal and dedication to the civil rights movement.

Enter the giveaway and win two tickets to hear Trio MoD perform Sunday, September 14th at 4 p.m. in Crocker’s Setzer Auditorium. Come for an afternoon of eclectic music highlighted by the spiritual coloring of flute, clarinet, and voice.

Before the concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of the exhibition African American Artists: Harlem Renaissance, Civil Rights Era, and Beyond.
