Unexpected instrumentation produces unsurpassed results when the Sixth Floor Trio presents their continuum of styles and culture at 7 p.m. Oct. 15 at the Marshalltown Community High School/Community Auditorium.
Committed to connecting diverse audiences through a united language of music, Sixth Floor Trio members Teddy Abrams (piano/clarinet), Harrison Hollingsworth (bassoon, violin) and Johnny Teyssier (clarinet) have concocted a truly original amalgam of repertoire and style, instrumentation notwithstanding. In their energized performances, composers such as Handel, Brahms and Bartok live side-by-side in a musical soup with rock, jazz, klezmer and ragtime.
Similarly, they share this newly conceived recipe far beyond the concert hall, including libraries, bus stations, summer music festivals and grunge bars. Each a graduate of the world-renowned Curtis Institute of Music, the Sixth Floor Trio is a resident partner in the national "Random Acts of Culture" program, sponsored by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
Live On Stage Marshalltown ("LOSM") is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization presenting world-class entertainment to the Marshalltown Community since 1949. Through the generosity of patrons and sponsors, LOSM is able to present these concerts at affordable, family-friendly prices.
