About this event

Trumpet player Adam O’Farrill and his quartet Stranger Days will appear in concert at Hope Central Church on Sunday evening, October 9th.

The "omnipresent, omnivorous young trumpeter” (David A. Graham, The Atlantic) and his brother Zack come from a rich musical background: their grandfather was the Afro-Cuban-Irish composer and arranger Chico O’Farrill; their father is the cultural boundary-pushing composer and pianist Arturo O’Farrill, and their mother Alison Deane is a classical pianist and educator.

Visions Of Your Other (Biophilia Records), the third album by his quartet Stranger Days, was recently hailed as “O’Farrill’s most melodically engaging effort yet” by The New York Times, which also named it one of the best albums of 2021. O’Farrill’s music is both abstract and personal, his compositions reflecting such diverse subjects as being mixed race, growing up in New York, family history, and spirituality, while drawing inspiration from film, literature, and folk traditions.

Stranger Days also features Xavier Del Castillo on tenor sax, Walter Stinson on bass and Zack O’Farrill on drums.

The performance is presented by Mandorla Music and will take place at Hope Central Church, 85 Seaverns Avenue. Doors open at 7:30 and music starts at 8. General admission tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Students with ID $15 at the door only.

Note that in accordance with venue policy, attendees will be asked to wear masks throughout the concert.
