Due to popular demand (and personal enjoyment!)

Performing duets, trios and quartets of arrangements by classical composers Ravel, Britten, Gliere, and Achron as well as Irish folk songs and original music, the concert is truly a celebration of live music in all its diversity.

What Andrea Keeble (violin) and Anthony Schulz (piano accordion) bring to Manuel DeFalla’s El Amor Brujo’; Love the Magician, a passionate expose’ of love conquering evil, and Prokofiev’s Violin Sonata, to Stravinsky, Dilermando Ries and their own works is the nexus between the ancient and new. “Sun Most South” is born of the fertile creative entities Cosmo Cosmolino, Zulya and the Children of the Underground and much more.Read More »
