The Performing Arts Society is this week hosting its second concert after nearly two-year COVID hiatus.
The Zodiac Trio, a three-member group featuring Kliment Krylovskiy on the clarinet, Vanessa Mollard on the violin and Riko Higuma on the piano, will be performing at the Christ Lutheran Church in Soldotna on Saturday evening.
According to the Performing Arts Society, the Trio’s music is an innovative combination of both 20th century and older works. The group plays numbers influenced by a variety of genres, including French romanticism, classical and South American tango.
“They have actually a really interesting mix. They’re playing some music that is classically oriented, and they’re also playing some arrangements of pieces that are not necessarily only in the classical genre,” Maria Allison, a board member of the Performing Arts Society, said Wednesday.
She said especially for younger musicians, it’s always nice to have that balance.
“I think that’s kind of fun to see younger people, because sometimes we tend to think of classical music as being sort of more for older people,” Allison said. “And of course, it’s for everybody.”
The concert starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at Christ Lutheran Church. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $10 for students. Tickets are sold at River City Books, Northcountry Fair, Curtain Call, Already Read Books, Country Liquor, and at the door of the concert.
