The Craig Concert Association presents Trio Voronezh at 7 p.m. today at the Journey at First Baptist Church, 1150 W. Ninth St.
The trio’s diverse repertoire ranges from the works of Bach, Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky to Russian folk songs, gypsy dance music and popular songs by Gershwin.
The group’s concert material is arranged by the trio’s members and performed from memory. Recently, the trio added works by Astor Piazzolla, Alfred Schnittke and Shostakovich and Strauss.
The trio, formed in 1993, includes Valerie Petrukhin, Vladimir Volokhin and Sergei Teleshev and is named for their native city of Voronezh, Russia.
They play traditional Russian folk instruments: a double-bass balalaika (the three-stringed Russian national instrument, with a triangular body made of fir), a domra (a three-stringed short-necked ancestor of the mandolin) and a bajan (a chromatic-button accordion with various registers).
Tickets for tonight’s performance are free with an annual membership to the concert association or $20 for adults and $10 for students.
