Hailed as “a first-class ensemble,” “unfailingly stylish,” “technically dazzling,” and “the epitome of what chamber musicians should be,” Trio Céleste has firmly established itself as one of the most dynamic chamber music ensembles on the classical music scene today. Performing in hundreds of recitals worldwide, their 2017 highlights include lauded debuts at New York’s Carnegie Hall, Seoul Arts Center in South Korea, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Their first album debuted at #5 on iTunes for “Best Seller New Release.”

The Trio will be joined by Chamber Music | OC Camerata in its performance debut, as well as members of Chamber Music | OC’s renowned Young Artists Program.

Trio Céleste is currently Ensemble-in-Residence at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts at UC Irvine.

More about Chamber Music | OC

In 2012, Chamber Music | OC presented its Inaugural Gala at The Irvine Barclay Theatre. Since then, the organization has firmly established itself as one of the most dynamic classical music organizations in the country dedicated to advancing the art of chamber music through performance, education, and community outreach. 

In April 2017, Chamber Music | OC presented their sold-out New York debut in Carnegie’s Zankel Hall prompting New York critic Jeffrey Williams to proclaim: “These musicians were in their element…from the exquisite control of the Allegro moderato ma con fuoco to the thrilling Presto, it was without a doubt one of the best performances this listener has heard” (New York Concert Review, New York, NY).

Join the organization as they make their triumphant return to the venue where it all began! Performers will include Trio Céleste, the award-winning Claire Trevor School of the Arts Ensemble-in-Residence, members of Chamber Music | OC’s renowned Young Artist Program, and the performance debut of the Chamber Music | OC Camerata, Southern California’s newest chamber orchestra!

Living in the Tempest

Directed by John Crawford

 

May 4 – 5, 2018

8:00 pm

Irvine Barclay Theatre

A cutting-edge intermedia performance linking interactive digital media with music, dance and theatre. We use fragments from William Shakespeare's mystical masterwork The Tempest, along with other sources, as inspiration to reflect on relationships between humans and oceans. Taking notice of the developing planetary crisis driven by the rapidly evolving human capacity to alter ocean systems, Living in the Tempest responds to contrasts and complexities of the coastal interface using Shakespeare’s mysterious island as a jumping-off point.
