Although a flute, harp and viola combination may seem odd at first, no other trio proves as enchanting or evocative -- a discovery made by Claude Debussy who wrote one of his best pieces for just such a grouping. Combining the dreaminess of the harp with the emotional precision of the viola and the high notes of the flute, the Myriad Trio has a range of feeling few other ensembles of any size can match. Formed by principal players of the San Diego and Dallas Symphonies, the trio plays traditional pieces as well as world premieres they commission themselves, such as David Bruce's The Eye of Night. During their concert at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, they will play Bruce's piece in addition to stirring works by Respighi, Natra, Bach and Debussy. Learn More

Described as the Buster Keaton of contemporary dance, Sean Curran's dance creations are imbued with his signature virtuosity, complex musicality, and a kaleidoscope of emotional expession. In 1997, he formed his own company, which has been presented at all the major dance venues in New York and numerous dance festivals. He has been commissioned to create new works by several major companies and has attained critical raves for his choreography for the Broadway musical James Joyce's "The Dead."
