DIXON – Trio Voronezh brings its wide-ranging program – from Bach and Tchaikovsky to Russian folk songs, gypsy dance music and popular songs by Gershwin – to the stage at
7 p.m. Nov. 5 at Historic Dixon Theatre, 114 S. Galena Ave. Because of scheduling conflicts, this is a change from previous publicity and from what is printed on tickets.
This is the second concert of the Sauk Valley Community Concert Association’s 2013-14 concert series.
Discovered playing Bach in a Frankfurt, Germany subway station, Trio Voronezh has since become world renowned, including several tours of the United States, and performances with U.S. orchestras including their orchestral debut with The Phoenix Symphony Orchestra in collaboration with Doc Severinsen.
The group’s concert material is arranged by the members. They play traditional Russian folk instruments: a double-bass balalaika (large triangular shaped Russian national instrument), a domra (a short necked ancestor of the mandolin), and a bajan, (a chromatic-button accordion with various registers).
Trio Voronezh accordionist Sergei Teleshev was declared winner of the 2013 Roland US V-Accordion Festival. He will represent the U.S. in the World Championships in Rome, Italy.
Upcoming SVCCA concerts include the National Lutheran Choir on Feb. 27 and the Abrams Brothers on April 10. Included with membership in the Sauk Valley Community Concert Association are reciprocal privileges to see the shows of the Ottawa and Freeport Concert Association shows for no additional cost – a total of eight additional concerts.
