Trinity-on-Main to host “Shared Rhythms from Japan, Brazil and Cuba,” on Saturday, March 24 at 7 pm. This show will take you on a journey that encompasses new culturally rich music and shared rhythms between the United States, South America and the Far East performed on flute, viola and guitar. Professional flautist and teacher Melanie Chirignan along side the Alturas Duo will bring the performance to life. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at or by calling 860-229-2072.

Melanie, a native of Hauppauge, NY is a professional flautist known for her musicality and versatility of repertoire. Melanie’s eclectic taste has led her to collaborate with many different performers and ensembles including: the Hartt Independent Chamber Orchestra, the Space Coast Flute Orchestra, and the Long Island flute ensemble, just to name a few. A certified music teacher, she has taught general music, chorus, and orchestra, and has taught every level from elementary school to conservatory level students.

The Alturas Duo has been recognized as one of the most engaging ensembles performing in the chamber music world today. The only group of its kind, the Duo was formed with the idea of playing South American and classical music by bringing together the unusual combination of the viola, charango and guitar, and in doing so, creating passionate music that moves at ease between the Baroque, South American folk rhythms and new pieces written especially for the Duo.

Trinity-on-Main is located at 69 Main St in New Britain. It is central Connecticut’s premier venue for live performances, events, and rental space. Housed in an elegant former church, Trinity-on-Main is a non-profit organization committed to bringing arts and cultural events to Greater New Britain, as well as encouraging community revitalization and economic development in the city.
