Crystal Trio: Harmonic Glass Ensemble in Concert

Thursday, March 24  –  7 p.m.

Main Theater

Join us as Igor Sklyarov, Vladimir Popras and Vladimir Perminov of Crystal Trio, master musicians from Siberia, perform on crystal glass instruments. Crystal Trio is one of the first professional ensembles to resuscitate the lost art of making music from glass harp, verrophone, and glass pan flute.  They have astounded audiences worldwide with their virtuosic renditions of well-known classical and popular modern works, as well as tunes specifically written for glass instruments.  With its enchanting, ethereal sound, some have compared glass music to the sound of angels singing while others call it mesmerizing.

Glass music is an ancient art that was popular in many noble houses of Europe, Russia and North America in the 18th and 19th centuries and often included as an integral part of the symphony orchestra inspiring composers such as Mozart and Beethoven.

Mesmerizing? Angelic?  A mystic memory?  Come hear Crystal Trio and decide for yourself!
