Faulkner, Hearne, Wood to take Texas Tunes stage April 18

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2015/4/8 7:18:43 (409 reads)

Open in new windowTom Faulkner, Michael Hearne and Beth Wood will take the stage Saturday, April 18, at 8 p.m., as the fourth act of the fifth annual Texas Tunes concert series.

The show will be held in the Performance Hall of Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater, 100 N. Charles Street. Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for seniors age 60 and older or children age 12 and younger, and can be purchased at MCLGrand.tix.com.

Lewisville residents are able to purchase single-show tickets for $10 each, either in advance at City Hall or on the performance date at the MCL Grand box office. Discount tickets are not available online. Current driver’s license or utility bill will be required to verify residency.

Tom Faulkner brings a unique blend of Texas rock, blues, Cajun and Tejano music. His music is a heartfelt abandonment of musical trends and a passionate embrace of the rich ethnic heritage of "Texico."

What is "Texico?" As Faulkner explains it, the State of Texas grew out of the areas that surround it -- most notably, Mexico, Louisiana and New Mexico. Most of the songs on his latest album were written in, or near, the places to which they refer. They convey a sense of romance that overwhelms him every time he travels through a wonderfully diverse world all its own. Producing his own material meant he didn't have to compromise on any of it, and the result is a solid, full-strength collection of Texas rooted music.

Michael Hearne offers up a guitar virtuosity and a mastery of country swing /southwestern Americana stylings.

Beth Wood is a musical triple-threat: a thoughtful songwriter, a talented multi-instrumentalist, and a supple, colorful vocalist.

The Texas Tunes series features performers from music halls and festivals throughout the state who present great music in a variety of genres, but all with that unique Texas flair that has made the state a hotbed for fans of live music.

Lewisville Lake Symphony Series Concert to Feature World-Class Pianist

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2015/4/6 7:19:57 (407 reads)

Open in new windowOpen in new windowPavel Gintov, winner of the 1st Takamatsu International Piano Competition, will perform with the Lewisville Lake Symphony on Friday, April 17, at 7:30 pm, in the final concert of the 2014-15 Symphony Series. He will play Shostakovich’s Concerto No. 1 for Piano, Trumpet, and Strings, a performance that also features Bert Truax on trumpet.

Mr. Gintov has been described as “a poet of the keyboard” by Marty Lash of the Illinois Enter-tainer, “a musical storyteller” by the Japanese publication Shikoku News, and a “world-class pianist, phenomenal in his own right” by the Savannah Morning News.

Following his debut at the Kiev Philharmonic Hall at the age of 12, Mr. Gintov toured throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, and the United States, appearing on such stages as Carnegie Hall in New York, Berlin Philharmonic Hall, and Teatro Verdi Nationale in Milan. Mr. Gintov graduated with honors from Moscow State Conservatory and is currently a Doctoral Candidate at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City.

A native of Ukraine, Mr. Gintov is also an avid chamber music performer, regularly performing with his sister, violinist Iryna Gintova, as well as with other artists. He was awarded the prize for the best collaborative pianist in the International Paganini Violin competition in Moscow.

The concert will also include Shostakovich’s Spanish Dance and Beethoven’s Grosse Fuge, considered to be one of Beethoven’s greatest achievements. He composed it later in his life when he was almost entirely deaf, and it is known to be notoriously difficult to play.

The concert takes place at the MCL Grand Theater, 100 N. Charles Street, in Old Town Lewisville. Tickets can be booked online at www.lewisvillesymphony.org and are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $10 for students. More information is available at 972.874.9087.
