Tickets Are On Sale Now

 

We’re lining up another great music series for 2012 and we are privileged to start our new year hosting the Langroise Trio as they celebrate their 20th year of performances.

In what has become a community favorite, the concert with Geoffrey Trabichoff, David Johnson, and Sam Smith provides an evening of exquisite chamber music in the fashion it was meant to be heard, with a small engaged audience sitting close up, and listening intently. The performance at the Martin has become a favorite of the Langroise Trio’s as well with Geoffrey saying “We love playing in your intimate venue, where the excellent acoustic is exceeded only by the warmth of the audience.”

Established in 1991 the Langroise Trio are Artists-in-residence at The College of Idaho, where they form the string faculty. They have performed on chamber music series in Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, their fourth c.d. is in the planning stage, and the Trio was one of the first groups to give an “internet archived” concert on the Millennium Stage of the Kennedy Center.

With its personnel among some of the foremost musicians in the country, the Langroise Trio offers an eclectic repertoire. Contemporary works by Idaho composers Jim Cockey and David Alan Earnest have been written especially for them and they stylishly play music from the Romantic, Classical, Baroque and Renaissance eras as well.

    WHAT A SHOW!!! I’ve seen these fellas before, but this performance was exceptional! The choice of music and the skill of the performers was amazing. Not to mention the way they played through the lighting problems!

    My daughter, who is fourteen, will not let me miss one of the Langroise Trio’s concerts–not that I would want to miss one. It’s a treat to hear excellent music in a venue like the Martin. I credit the live performances at the Martin for developing in Lindsey an appreciation for the live performance of music. Much of the music we listen to at home comes from CD’s we purchased at shows. It’s an added dimension to listen to music after you’re heard it live, especially in such an intimate setting.

    The trio’s skill was amazing. They chose their playlist carefully and absolutely awed the audience with their electricity and warmth. I bought one of their cd’s and played it all weekend. Beautiful!

    What a privilege to have the Langroise Trio here in Winnemucca. And for me to sit in the front row and watch exactly how they hold the bow and how they hold the instrument under their chin and where they place the bow on the strings. And the music was absolutely awesome. Don’t have the CD yet but plan to get it.
