MOUNT VERNON — The Community Concert Association of Knox County presents its third concert of the season tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Memorial Theater with The Indigo Ensemble, a chamber music quartet from Berlin, Germany.
Using violin, guitar, bass and piano, they have an extremely varied repertoire representing four continents and three centuries. They first performed in the USA in October 2010.
The guitarist, Seth Josel, one of the leading instrumental pioneers of his generation, has given concerts throughout Europe, the USA, Canada, Israel and Japan. He has been a guest performer with leading orchestras and ensembles and is a member of the Amsterdam based electric guitar quartet, Catch.
Johannes Neupert, of the former East Germany, is a virtuoso violinist. He is equally at home within a broad spectrum of musical styles that ranges from Schubert to Swing to Sting
Double bassist, Peter Nelson, originally from South Carolina, has lived in Germany for the last 24 years. He is the principal bassist of the Thuringian Philharmonic, an active chamber musician and teacher. He also loves to “jam” on electric bass in multiple styles in the clubs of Leipzig. No stranger to America, he has performed and moderated hundreds of concerts throughout the US with his group, the Thuringer Salonquintett.
Pianist extraordinaire, Rafael de Torres, originally from Granada, Spain, now lives and works as a concert pianist in Weimar, Germany. Chamber music is his passion and he happens to be the youngest member of the ensemble.
Though recently founded, these four have been collaborating with one another throughout Germany for many years. What began as sporadic musical encounters evolved into the formation of this group of friends who share one huge love of producing exciting music while reaching to connect with each other and the audience. For musical entertainment that can vary from a concerto, to a tango, to American folk, to Bach, to a minuet, this is a performance not to miss.
Single tickets may be purchased at the box office when the doors open at 6:30 p.m. All youngsters under the age of 21 are admitted free with a ticket-holding adult. For more info, contact Membership Chair Rosemarie Lehane at 599-5085.
