Sat., Oct. 26: Violin Workshop

Steve Gibons’ Music Improv Workshop for Classical and World Music String Players
(A workshop scaled to the expertise of the participants.)

Time: 11:00a.m.- 2:00p.m.

Duration: 3 hours – All ages and instruments welcome

Location: (John Kendall Recital Hall)
at Potter Violins: Fine Violins, Violas, Cellos and Bows
7711 Eastern Ave.
Takoma Park, MD
(On site parking available)

Free Workshop ($15 Donation suggested)

Gibons uses ideas that will be familiar to string players with classical training to bridge the gap between the worlds of written music and that of improv. The workshop also accommodates a wide variety of skill levels by scaling the complexity of the melodic lines and rhythmic harmony parts we use to the participants comfort.  At the very minimum, students must be fluent enough on their instrument to play
scales in first position with two accidentals. There is no maximum requirement.  European Gypsy music, Gypsy Jazz, Middle Eastern music, and American Songbook jazz standards are the genres used as a base for the workshop repertoire. These all share many aspects of improvisation technique. All parts are learned by ear.

Posted by admin - August 11th, 2015

It is wonderful to return to DC! This concert will be extra special for me.  I was a MD resident for 24 years and during 10 of those years, I was an active performer at La Taberna del Alabardero accompanying the late flamenco singer, Manolo Leiva. Together we presented quality flamenco shows and special performances for Spanish dignitaries and the clientele of  La Taberna del Alabardero . I am delighted to return, presenting 2 shows of traditional flamenco guitar and song with flamenco arrangements of South and Latin American, and Pop songs.

Come enjoy the fine dining of La Taberna and experiencing flamenco in this beautiful, intimate setting.

Marija Temo in Flamenco Documentary, DC showing 11/16/13

Posted by admin - November 15th, 2013

Dear flamenco aficionados,

This Sat., Nov. 16, 2013, at 2:00p.m., a Flamenco Documentary, on The History of Flamenco in the US, will be showing in D.C.

I, along with other accomplished D.C. flamenco artists (as well as a mentor/colleague of mine, Manolo Leiva, who passed away last year) will also be featured in the film.

The director, Carolina Loyola- Garcia, has put her passion for flamenco, determined efforts in traveling throughout the US, and talents as a director and interviewer to compile and present Sobre las Olas- a story of flamenco in the US. If you are able to attend, it would be wonderful to support her efforts. Read More »
