‘Intersection’ to perform at Abingdon Episcopal
Abingdon Episcopal Church, on Route 17 in White Marsh, Gloucester County, will host the group “Intersection” (piano, violin, and cello) in the fourth concert this season in the Arts at Abingdon Series. The concert will be held Sunday, March 10, at 5 p.m. at the church. Admission is free but a free-will offering will be accepted. A public reception will be held afterwards.
Soulful expression, instrumental virtuosity, playful banter—these are the hallmarks of an Intersection event, in which the realms of concert and popular music are seamlessly dovetailed. The typical program is an irresistible blend of classical, jazz, Latin, Broadway/film music, vital new commissions, and the group’s own original compositions and arrangements.
With its versatility, its engaging stage manner, and its unique mixing of trio, duo and solo formats, Intersection has won a large and avid international fan base. In Japan alone, each of the group’s numerous CDs and DVDs has shot to the top of the classical and crossover charts.
These three young musicians — violinist Laura Frautschi, cellist Kristina Reiko Cooper, and pianist John Novacek—have enthralled the audiences worldwide. Intersection is a piano trio, but its concerts are unlike any by other like ensembles. Accessible appears to be the key word in their program building. Traditional piano trio repertoire is present, but those works are balanced by compositions that are lighter, shorter, and readily understood and enjoyed. Besides trios, the programs also included duos and solo works.
Seating for the concert is limited so please arrive early. A public reception will be held afterwards and everyone is invited for refreshments and to meet the musicians. For further information, call the Abingdon Church Parish Office at 804- 693-3035.
