Meramec Welcomes Trio Globo for Two-Day Residency and Free concerts

April 06, 2009

Trio Globo  

Eugene Friesen, Howard Levy and Glen Velez create the magical sounds

of Trio Globo.

St. Louis Community College-Meramec is proud to welcome world-renowned Tri Globo to the Meramec campus for a two-day residency, Thursday and Friday, April 23 and 24. A full schedule of workshops and concerts is planned for STLCC students and the general public. All events are free and will culminate with a concert in the Meramec Theatre on Friday evening at 7:30 p.m. The Meramec Orchestra and Choir and other Meramec Arts students will join Trio Globo for the final performance.

Musicians Howard Levy, playing harmonica and piano, cellist Eugene Friesen, and Glen Velez on drums and percussion have redefined the performance parameters of their individual instruments and have each achieved acclaim as soloists and composers. Together they form Trio Globo, whose broad and virtuosic repertoire is inspired by a wealth of the earth's cultures and traditions.

Advocates of environmental consciousness, the Trio draws inspiration from the world's music, its inhabitants, customs, faiths, and natural wonders in a wide-ranging original program drawn from global folk traditions, jazz, the classics and blues. With a focus on musical and natural beauty shared across international borders, Trio Globo's performance joyously conveys the commonality of human celebration, dignity, spirituality and love in the context of an abundant and radiant planet.

For information on the following workshops and concerts please call the Community Relations Office at 314-984-7529 or the Meramec Music Department at 314-984-7639.
