Saint Michael Trio
Date: Sunday, January 20, 2013 at 3 pm
Fremont United Methodist Church, 2950 Washington Blvd., Fremont
The Saint Michael Trio, which has won accolades from the national press, is not your ordinary chamber group. For one thing, their repertoire spans the classics to contemporary, including the jazz greats and their own arrangements of popular and even rock tunes. For another, their hallmark is mixing all of it into a single concert.
But they’re also different because of the way they make their concerts interesting, funny and thoroughly accessible, engaging audiences in the music in a way few performers can. Their original approach is gaining new audiences who never before gave the slightest thought to classical music.
Stunning virtuosi, the three musicians also have thriving careers apart from their music. Violinist Daniel Cher is a medical doctor who designs and implements clinical trials for Bay Area medical device companies. Cellist Michel Flexer is a software engineer and serial entrepreneur, and pianist Russell Hancock is a member of the public policy faculty at Stanford and President and CEO of Joint Venture Silicon Valley. A reception after the performance will include refreshments and a chance to meet and visit with the musicians.A reception after the performance will include refreshments and a chance to meet and visit with the musicians.
