On Sunday, March 25 at 7 p.m., Waterfall Arts will present a benefit performance and master class with jazz musician Brad Terry at the Belfast Area High School, 98 Waldo Ave. Proceeds will benefit “Painters, Players and Poets,” the multi-media installation on exhibit at Waterfall Arts through March 28.

“Painters, Players and Poets” is a unique collaboration celebrating the tremendous talents of 48 Maine artists. Included in the project are 16 Maine painters, nine Maine musicians/composers, seven Maine poets and 16 Maine chair makers. Two years ago, writer/producer Con Fullam asked several well-known Maine composers and poets to identify a living Maine painter whose work inspired them and then choose a specific painting to interpret via poem or musical composition. A traveling exhibition featuring those 16 collaborations has been installed in various locations since July 2011.

The inclusion of the handcrafted chairs derives from an effort to create an experience that is both memorable and comfortable at the same time. Viewing the entire exhibit takes approximately an hour and 10 minutes. Each participating artist took his or her own route to the final destination, said Fullam.

“Regardless of the paths taken we are certain that once you have experienced the project, you will agree that the final results are a sight and sound to behold,” he said.

Terry is one of the players/musicians whose collaboration with visual artist Dahlov Ipcar is included in the exhibit. He is a celebrated clarinetist and jazz whistler with a local and international following. He “studied” at an early age by sitting in with Buddy Tate’s Celebrity Club Orchestra and has played with scores of distinguished jazzmen, notably Dizzy Gillespie, Lenny Breau, Roger Kellaway, Buck Clayton, Buddy Tate, Steve Swallow and Red Mitchell. Self-taught and left to his own devices, he has developed a style and sound uniquely his own.

Terry also is an experienced jazz educator and has led workshops and master classes in many countries. In recent years, he has been active in touring and recording as a duo with Polish pianist Joachim Mencel. They can be heard together on the recordings “All About Spring” and “Live at Fort Andross.”

For the concert, Terry will be accompanied by guitarist Peter Herman and promises a relaxed, fun evening with jazz standards, improvisation, discussions and audience involvement. Earlier in the day, beginning at 3 p.m., Terry will lead a master class for all ages and levels of musical expertise. The class will be low-key and relaxed, not a lecture and, as he is encouraging of all musicians, Terry will have something to impart to every player.

Tickets for the master class are $10 advance, $12 at the door.
