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

<p>The New World Flamenco Festival has ordered up a big new show that will be rehearsed in Spain and presented in its world premiere. Somos Flamencos celebrates flamenco's most treasured traditions of improvisation and spontaneity among its dancers, singers and guitarists. Yaelisa, the Festival's artistic director, is guest-directing this extraordinary ensemble of Spain's top dancers, musicians and singers.</p>
<p>In response to some of its other original shows - Jerez, Puro; Sin Fronteras starring Savion Glover; and Y Una Batita de Cola - the Festival has been asked to represent this show on a national tour during the 2009-2010 season. The run has been extended to five nights of vibrant dance, majestic cante, and soulful guitar.</p>
