St. Michael Trio at Villa Montalvo

Montalvo Arts Center (Previously Villa Montalvo)

Lots of groups nowadays do what, in old-fashioned parlance, is called “crossover.” There are many classically trained musicians who play popular styles. But the Saint Michael Trio is offering to do something else again – run the gamut of 250 years of trio music, including jazz, rock, and blues. In 75 minutes. That's got to be more entertaining than your average chamber concert or (especially) a music history lecture. And the group is said to be rock-solid musically. But the only way to find out is to head to the Villa Montalvo.
