CLASSICAL | 'Dulcemelos' 

As part of its "Summer @ Eastman" program, the Eastman School of Music will present a rare concert on Thursday, highlighting Mexican music written for the salterio, or hammered dulcimer. The featured performers include the salterio group Duo Dulcemelos — Alejandra Barrientos and Hector Larios — along with their two sons, pianist Mitzie Collins, and the Striking Strings Hammered Dulcimer Ensemble. The majority of the compositions on the program were written during the 19th and 20th centuries. While the dulcimer is well-known as a mainstay in Appalachian folk music, its prominence in Mexican music may be less familiar to some — which makes this concert all the more special.

"Dulcemelos" will take place Thursday, August 3, at Eastman School of Music's Kilbourn Hall, 26 Gibbs Street. 7:30 p.m. $10. 274-1000; summer.esm.rochester.edu.
