The Modern Trio will perform a slightly different but equally exciting repertoire for its concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 29. Saxophonist Russ Peterson has broken his hand and will be making an appearance, but the concert will be performed by a Duo for the most part. Because of this change, tickets will not be required. Enjoy an evening of wonderful music by Sonja Bosca-Harasim and Jay Hershberger free of charge.
The concert will be in Christiansen Recital Hall, Hvidsten Hall of Music.
When three extraordinary musicians combine their eclectic musical interests with internationally recognized classical performance ability, you get The Modern Trio. Concordia faculty and Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra members Sonja Harasim, Russell Peterson and Jay Hershberger formed the trio in 2017 which blends the unlikely (but brilliant) matchup of violin, saxophone and piano. Their program is varied and can encompass everything from Argentinian tango, British progressive rock, American smooth jazz, a bit of Mahler and Shostakovich, new compositions created just for the trio, and maybe a little country and western thrown in for fun. What you will certainly get with The Modern Trio is an enjoyable, awe-inspiring, and thoroughly entertaining performance experience.
