To experience top-notch classical musicianship - minus the formalities - catch NZTrio: The Americas performing live in the intimate and welcoming main gallery at the Mairangi Arts Centre on Saturday March 16th.
Ashley Brown (cello) welcomes back Andrew Beer (violin) and Stephen De Pledge (piano) for a ripper of a programme with elements of New York nightlife, the wild west, jazzy blues, plus a liberal dose of spice from south o’ the border. It’s classical music, but it’s wearing boots to the party so dress casual, bring a compadre, and enjoy the ride.
Music by Kenji Bunch, Paul Schoenfield, Gunther Schuller, Raimundo Penaforte, Astor Piazzolla and New Zealand’s own Claire Cowan and Jack Body. Up close and powerful, this is an Art3 (art to the power of 3) experience set amidst the Portraiture exhibition exploring diplomatic relations and the broader themes of cultural identity. Those of you who loved Exotica will not want to miss The Americas!
