The Parlay: “Birdsong”
par·lay /ˈpärˌlā,ˈpärˌlē/ verb. to chill or to have a discussion
The Parlay is a seasonal series of music performances in public spaces during happy hour, co-curated by Curator of Spoken Word Yolanda Wisher and vocalist/musician/arranger V. Shayne Frederick.
At indoor and outdoor locations around the city, Frederick will converse and perform with a diverse cast of musicians over cocktails provided by Art in the Age. Attendees receive two drink tickets, a limited edition keepsake, and a curated playlist.
“Birdsong,” the first event in the series, will take place at Race Street Pier featuring Frederick (vocals/piano), Mollie Ducoste (violin), Talie (guitar/vocals), and Mervin Toussaint (sax/flute). Their performances will respond to Tracey Emin’s sculpture A Moment Without You on the pier.
The event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 5 pm. Register for free today!
In the event of inclement weather, the festivities will move indoors to Cherry Street Pier.
