Trio Vororezh to perform on March 26

RONAN Big Productions, a fundraising venture of the Cantlon Family Youth Home, (formerly the Lake County Youth Home), is bringing the Russians to Ronan! At 7:30 PM on Wednesday, March 26, Russian artists Trio Voronezh will have the audience on their feet as they perform Russian and American music on traditional Russian instruments.

The special performance will be at the Ronan Performing Arts Center in the Ronan Middle School complex and is co-sponsored by Dennis and Jan Wolfe.

Trio Voronezh is a musical ensemble that produces incredibly exciting sounds and compelling arrangements of classics across a variety of musical styles, all played upon Russian folk instruments. Trio Voronezhs astonishing virtuosity and delightful artistic innovation give the trio the ability to alter the way audiences experience classical, folk and contemporary repertoire. The diverse repertoire of the Trio includes the works of Vivaldi, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Shostakovich, and Rachmaninov, as well as Russian folk songs, Argentine tangos, gypsy dance music, bluegrass and popular songs by Gershwin. The ever-expanding concert material is arranged by the members of the Trio, and performed with extraordinary virtuosity and musical lyricism entirely from memory.

The musicians of Trio Voronezh have been playing and performing since they were young children, around the age of six. They continued their classical training and pursued further study at the Conservatory in Voronezh, Russia, which is where they met each other, and the source of their name. This exciting performance will be remembered in the Valley as one of the most dynamic of the season.

Tickets are available in Ronan at Hanson and Granley True Value and in Polson at Shannon Nunlist Physical Therapy or The Terrace Flowers and Gifts.

The Big Productions series is the largest rural concert series in Montana, but it would not happen without its loyal sponsors: Access Montana, Ronan Harvest Foods, H&R Block in Polson, Jim and Cindy Willis, Don Aadsen Ford, Super 1 Foods, and Anderson Broadcasting make the series possible.

With the passing of long-time concert coordinator Chas Cantlon, a committee has been formed to continue the series. Anyone interested in joining the committee is invited to contact Trish Rodrique:
