HUGO — Three world-class musical groups will perform in Hugo during Choctaw County Arts Council’s 2010 Performing Arts Season.
The opening event, the Decadent Dessert concert on Jan. 14, will feature Duo Clarion, Chad Barrow and Any I-Lin, a clarinet-piano duo in a homage to Benny Goodman.
The pair, originally from Oklahoma, recently performed at Carnegie Hall in New York to raved reviews. Their performance has been described as “expressive ferocity,” “with great flair” and “brilliant.” They have toured throughout the United States in such locations as Boston, San Francisco and Salt Lake City and have been featured at major music festivals. Barrow has been named the professor of clarinet at the University of Michigan.
The Feb. 18, 2010 concert will be Trio Tulsa. This group has been reviewed as “one of the foremost chamber groups of the United States.” Maureen O’Boyle, violin, Diane Buccianeri, cello and Roger Price, piano, are all at the University of Tulsa. They have been called “truly glorious,” “warm and vibrant” and “sweet nectar for the spirit.” They are known for vibrant, inventive concerts of little-known gems and hidden masterpieces, and will present a varied mix of styles and genre.
