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

This was a great concert. However, Suzanne mentioned several times she couldn't see the audience. To me that meant she wanted a more intimate environment. I think the house lights should have been turned up a little bit for her. That said, Suzanne, the music and her musicians were great. Suzanne also graciously came to the lobby after the concert to sign autographs and pose for pictures. Nice touch.

With her sultry voice, Suzanne Vega seamlessly joins her poetry and contemporary folk song with a sound that is utterly unique and identifiable to her alone. A pioneer among singer-songwriters, Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s. Her international hit songs "Luka" and "Tom’s Diner" have now both entered the cultural vernacular. In performances devoid of outward drama that nevertheless convey deep emotion, Vega sings in a distinctive, clear vibrato-less voice described by The New York Times as conveying an “inviolable purity of heart tinged with mystery and a faraway melancholy.”
