CONCERT – Winter’s Eve Trio

Version 2

In Night’s Deep Silence

Friday March 31st, 2017 at 8pm
St Jude’s Anglican Church
160 William Street
downtown Oakville, Ontario

Winter’s Eve Trio:
Sharlene Wallace, harps
Joseph Macerollo O.C., accordion
George Koller, bass

info

A unique concert of unique instruments.

The repertoire for accordion, harp and bass is pretty limited. Well, actually… it doesn’t exist!! However, when you gather together a triad of friends who are undaunted by limitations, there is a musical experience of unique beauty, rhythm, and original music. Sharlene, George and Joe have performed together as a trio with Guelph Chamber Choir, Mississauga Chamber Music, for the International Divas Concert, on Sharlene’s CD Beyond the Waves, and for other concert series. Included on this concert will be music from Sharlene & George’s CD “In Night’s Deep Silence” as well as compositions by Sharlene Wallace, Alfredo Rolando Ortiz, Classical and Celtic music and inspirations of winter. Sharlene loves winter and… playing with the incomparable Joe Macerollo and George Koller.

“Welcome to heaven… here’s your harp.*” … and accordion and bass?!?!!
