Dalton Center Recital Hall
Trio Globo will present a concert at 7:30 p.m., preceded by a pre-concert talk at 7 p.m. in WMU’s Dalton Center Recital Hall. This concert is ticketed through Miller Auditorium, ticket price $12, $10 senior, $5 student with ID.
The same day, Trio Globo will present a masterclass at 1 p.m., also in Dalton Recital Hall, which is free and open to the public.
This event is presented as a collaboration between the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music, Western Michigan University School of Music, and the Great Lakes Acoustic Music Association.
Trio Globo has crafted a totally original voice in contemporary acoustic jazz. With roots in jazz, classical and sacred music, rhythmic influences derived from travels in six continents, and a combustible spontaneity, cellist Eugene Friesen (Paul Winter Consort), pianist and master harmonica player Howard Levy (Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Kenny Loggins, Paquito d’Rivera), and percussionist Glen Velez (Paul Winter Consort, Steve Reich) epitomize the quintessential group for the 21st century. They are true originals re-inventing their instruments in new music both personal and global. www.trioglobo.com
“Eugene, Howard & Glen are magnificent players with distinct musical voices. Together they have a fresh new sound and offer a unique vision of the world of music.” — Dave Brubeck
“These are true musical citizens of the world. Amidst a pulsing energy and virtuosity, a refreshing and soaring lyricism stands out as perhaps Trio Globo’s signature quality.” — Paul Winter
