LA CROSSE, Wis. — Trio Voronezh is bringing its virtuoso talents to Viterbo University’s Main Theatre on Feb. 23 at 7:30 p.m. With original arrangements that are a distinct mix of classical, folk, and contemporary music, they offer something for everyone.

The members of Trio Voronezh are Vladimir Volokhin, who plays the domra, Sergei Teleshev, the bajan, and Valerie Petrukhin, the double-bass balalaika.  Classically trained at the Conservatory in Voronezh, Russia, this true Cinderella-story began in the streets, subways, and small clubs of European cities.

Discovered playing Bach in a Frankfurt, Germany subway station, they made their U.S. debut at the 1996 Oregon Bach Festival.  They were the hit of the summer and were immediately invited to return.  In fall 1998, the Trio began their first U.S. tour by bringing down the house on Minnesota Public Radio's "A Prairie Home Companion" with Garrison Keillor.  They have since performed in major performing arts venues throughout the U.S. including New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta, St. Louis, New Orleans, and many others.

The three members of the group still make their home in the city of Voronezh.  Their self-titled debut recording is available on Angel Records.

Trio Voronezh is sponsored by Franciscan-Skemp Healthcare and supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.

Tickets are $25/19.  To order tickets, contact the Viterbo University Box Office at 796-3100 or explore the Bright Star Season.
