“A perfect blend of musical poetry and lyrics” wrote Tim Groth , Black Hills Chamber Music Society, about a Lyric Arts Trio performance. Elena Lence Talley, clarinet; Daniel Velicer, piano; and Sarah Tannehill Anderson, soprano, have delighted audiences throughout the Midwest with their technical and artistic abilities and wonderful musicianship. They project a warmth and pleasure in performing concerts crafted around a central theme, complemented by informal remarks about the music that both enlighten and entertain audiences. Look no farther for what Bertie Leigh Compann, Norton (KS) Arts Council, calls, “a concert of exquisite beauty.
The trio presents concerts of solos, duos and trios, typically unified by a central theme, in a relaxed environment, distinguished by insightful (but still informal) commentary about the music by the performers. The Lyric Arts Trio has performed in 6 states and Canada for more than 20 years, including many communities and colleges in Kansas. Programs may be created or customized for a presenter. Current programs include: “American Voices,” “Remembering the Great War,” “Of Love and Remembrance,” “Hearts and Flowers,” and “Music of the Americas,” among others.
Adapted programs for senior or student populations are available to complement the concert performance.
School concerts for upper elementary, middle and high school students are available in conjunction with a concert performance. Teachers’ guides available to complement the performance. Artist master classes available for advanced students in chamber music, clarinet, piano or voice.
