The Cultural Center of Cape Cod will present “Playing Favorites!” with the Fred Fried/Bruce Abbott Quintet on Sunday, November 28, at 3 PM.
The ensemble will play works by such composers as George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mandel, Michel LeGrand and Bill Evans. Guitarist Fred Fried described the motivation for the show this way: “As musicians, we’ve been asked so many times about our favorite songs that we decided to showcase even more of the tunes we love to play. After last year’s sold-out performance, we were agreed that an all-new Playing Favorites would be just the thing.”
The quintet features Fred Fried on eight-string guitar, Bruce Abbott on sax and flute, Marcelle Gauvin on vocals, Evan Carley on bass, and Miki Matsuki on drums. Until further notice, ticket holders for Cultural Center events will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test conducted within 72 hours prior to the event.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online or by calling 508-394-7100. The Cultural Center of Cape Cod is at 307 Old Main Street in South Yarmouth.
