Words and Music Series with Stephanna Take Two
April 4, 2024 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Steve and Anna Marr, i.e., Stephanna Take Two, are a clarinet and piano duo who are intimately involved in several musical venues in our community. Steve is a member of the St. Augustine Orchestra and Anna plays in the jazz combo “Teal Cabana Club,” in addition to various venues as Stephanna Take Two. They are both classically trained and were featured in a “classical” Words and Music performance in 2023. They have also previously performed in the St Augustine Romanza Festival, with the St. Augustine Concert Band, the St. Augustine Community Chorus and First Coast Opera.
They are also accomplished musicians in several other musical genres, which includes today’s focus on Ragtime, Big Bands, Swing and Jazz Standards from the 1890s through the 1950s. Whether playing Scott Joplin, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, or Carlos Jobim – you’re sure to enjoy Stephanna’s renditions of their works.
You can also count on an explanation of the history and the characteristics of the music from each era. They not only bring the music alive, but also provide the listener with a greater appreciation for the artists and their impacts upon music and, in turn, upon society.
The Waterworks is available through the generosity of the City of St. Augustine and the St. Johns Cultural Council.
