Join us for the MAYA Trio at the North Dakota Museum of Art on Sunday, March 3, 2pm.
The term “maya” has deep roots and diverse meanings around the world. In Hindu philosophy, “maya” is the divine power which has created the cosmos. In Buddhism, “maya” is the veil of illusion, the transitory appearance of the physical world, and a metaphoric challenge for spiritual aspirants. In the Americas, the Mayan people formed a highly developed culture whose singular achievements included monumental architecture, agriculture, astronomy, mathematics, and a distinct calendrical system. Maya is a term found in the Upanishads, in Vedic and Sanskrit writings—a richly evocative image in cultures and literature throughout the East. MAYA, a trio formed in the summer of 2005, brings to the Myra Series a uniquely compelling and rhythmically driven combination of flute, harp, and percussion, performing classical and new music, world music, and incorporating improvisations into its performances.
Myra Presents: Sunday Concerts in the Galleries
After years of quiet support, the Museum decided it was long past time to honor the local Myra Foundation for its gifts to classical music. The concerts range far and wide from violinist Alejandro Drago’s newest venture, Tango Rendezvous International, to pianist Sarah Cahill’s celebration of the 100th birthday of John Cage. From the premier, post-classical string quartet, Ethel, to Norway’s rising star, trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth. The series concludes with Maya, a trio born out of the chamber music tradition, which stretches the boundaries of the classical chamber concert while creating appealing programs that weave together music of diverse traditions. Join us Sunday afternoons at 2 pm in the beautiful galleries of the North Dakota Museum of Art.
Concerts are followed by a reception with hors d'oeuvres and wine. Parking is free in the lot to the north of the Museum entrance.
