Strings on the Bay, the annual Summer Chamber Music Series sponsored by Bay de Noc Community College is returning to Delta County.
The first of three summer concerts will feature a returning audience favorite.
The events will be held at first Presbyterian Church in Escanaba. He said concerts that were cancelled last year are this year’s line–up.
Cost is 10 dollars per person.
And later in July, Strings on the Bay will hold a series called “‘Beethoven Bash.”
Strings on the Bay, the annual summer chamber music series brought to you by Bay de Noc Community College, is next week Tuesday, June 29th, at First Presbyterian Church, 819 First Avenue South, at 7:30 PM EST. This performance is the first of three concerts this summer and features a returning audience favorite – accordionist Stas Venglevski. A graduate from the Russian Academy of Music in Moscow and the two-time first place prize winner in the bayan, “Stas” Venglevski captivates and dazzles audiences with his incredible technique and musical sensitivity.
The instrument Venglevski plays is more properly called a “bayan.” A bayan is a chromatic button accordion that possesses a far greater range of notes than the more familiar keyboard style.
In addition to solo selections, Venglevski has asked violinist and Strings on the Bay music director, Paul Lundin, to join him for the second half of the program. Together they will perform works ranging from Vivaldi and Bach to tangos by Astor Piazzolla.
Tickets are available through the Bay College website: www.baycollege.edu, at the Besse Center Box Office or at the door the night of the concert. Admission price is $5 for students and Bay College employees, $10 for adults, and $25 for three (3) adult tickets. Remaining programs in the series are on July 20th and August 10th at 7:30 PM also at First Presbyterian Church in Escanab
