Rule of three: How many trios are in a Neave Trio concert? If you count the musical works—Rebecca Clarke’s Piano Trio; Amy Beach’s Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 150; and Louise Farrenc’s Piano Trio in E-flat Major, Op. 33—you can count up to four for this one. Since forming in 2010, the chamber ensemble, comprised of violinist Anna Williams, cellist Mikhail Veselov, and pianist Eri Nakamura, has toured the globe and repeatedly landed on “Best of” annual classical music lists. Neave strives to champion new works by modern composers and reach wider audiences, and its latest release, Celebrating Piazzolla, is no exception.

Thursday 3/28


While developing a play about a meeting between former president John F. Kennedy and former British prime minister Harold Macmillan, screenwriter and playwright Nick Drake came across another figure in Kennedy’s life that piqued his interest—George Thomas, who was JFK’s personal valet from his time in the Senate until his death. Drake’s research led him to the Miller Center and then to Thomas’ hometown of Berryville, Virginia, where his review of photographs, travel records, and oral histories raised the idea that Thomas had an influence on Kennedy’s landmark June 1963 address that laid the groundwork for the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Playwright and director Leslie Scott-Jones will host a discussion with Drake to distill his findings. Free, 6pm. Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, 233 Fourth St. NW. 260-8720.
