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

The renowned vocal ensemble,Chanticleer, joins the Shanghai Quartet for the southern California premiere of From the Path of Beauty, a lyrical and dramatic song cycle for voice and string quartet. In this specially-commissioned work, celebrated composer Chen Yi shares her deeply personal feelings about her native country, China. The Barclay is especially pleased to invite Chanticleer back to their stage. This "orchestra of voices," combined with the intimate acoustics of the theatre's Cheng Hall, never fails to astonish.
