The GCUMC Performing Arts Series will also continue this month on January 21st at 2:00pm where we will be featuring esteemed American concert violinist Andrew Sords with celebrated collaborative pianist Elizabeth DeMio. There is no admission charge for this concert, however we will take up a offering to defray the cost.

DeMio has performed as soloist with the Orquesta Sinfonica de Veracruz and the Orquesta de la UNAM in Mexico, and her appearance with Cleveland’s Blue Water Chamber Orchestra resulted in the Plain Dealer’s Donald Rosenberg declaring – “a superb interpreter of Mozart”. She has appeared in over 100 concerts annually and performs frequently with renowned soloists such as David Requiro, Massimo La Rosa, and Andrew Sords.

Sords himself maintains a heavy schedule of touring with his piano trio and as soloist with orchestras. His performances have been cited for combining visceral virtuosity and ravishing tone, while international critics have endorsed Sords as “a fully formed artist” (Kalisz-Poland News), “utterly radiant” (Canada’s Arts Forum), and “exceptionally heartfelt and soulful” (St. Maarten’s Daily Herald). Sords has performed overseas with the National Symphony of Guatemala, as well as in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, and numerous other venues with concerti by Beethoven, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Bologne, Wieniawski, and others. It will certainly be a star-studded event here in Gold Canyon, so be sure to arrive early to get your seats.

Doors will open 30 minutes prior to the concert.
