CONCORDIA PERFORMING ARTS SERIES
TO PRESENT TRIO VORONEZH
The Concordia College Performing Arts Series will present Trio Voronezh at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 11, in the Centrum, Knutson Campus Center.
Trio Voronezh is a musical ensemble that produces incredibly exciting sounds and compelling arrangements of classics across a variety of musical styles, all played on authentic Russian folk instruments. The trio’s artistic innovation has given them the ability to alter the way audiences experience classical, folk and contemporary repertoire.
Vladimir Volokhin, Valerie Petrukhin and Sergei Teleshev formed the trio in 1993 and named themselves after the working-class city from which they studied and perfected their craft, a city of more than a million people,approximately 350 miles south of Moscow. In 1995, Trio Voronezh sprang onto the international stage after they were discovered playing classical favorites and folk tunes in a Frankfurt, Germany, subway station. After the ensemble’s 1995 U.S. debut, their first U.S. tour began in 1998 at NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion.” The group has recorded five albums.
Tickets are $25 for reserved; $20 for general admission; and $10 for students under 18. For tickets, visit ConcordiaTickets.com or call the Office of Cultural Events at (218) 299-4366.
