Prima Trio, a classical trio, performs at the Crescent Elk Auditorium on Thursday, April 18, at 7:30 p.m. as the third performance in the Del Norte-Curry Community Concert Association's 2012andndash;13 season.
An award-winning trio composed of violin, clarinet and piano, Prima Trio will present its trademark virtuosity in a program of diverse and entertaining repertoire.
The Prima Trio was formed in 2004 and debuted at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., in 2006.
Guilia Gurevich (violin/viola, Uzbekistan), Boris Allakhverdyan (clarinet, Azerbaijan) and Anastasia Dedik (piano, Russia) met as students at the renowned Oberlin Conservatory in Ohio. Each musician has been distinguished as a soloist internationally, and as members of a trio they have met with equal success.
Among their prizes, Prima Trio won the Grand Prize and Gold Medal in the Senior Division at the prestigious Fischoff Chamber Music Competition (South Bend, Ind.) in 2007, earning a domestic tour and debut at Italy's Emilia Romagna Festival.
The trio has performed concerts on stages across North America and Europe and is currently on a 50-city tour of the United States through concert presenter Live On Stage.
At the April 18 concert, Prima Trio will perform traditional classical pieces by Schumann and Piazzolla, "The Klezmer's Wedding" by Glick, and a rousing "Serenade for Three" by the composer known as P.D.Q. Bach.
While in Crescent City, Prima Trio will also present a special outreach concert to middle and high school students, under the sponsorship of the DNCC Concert Association.
