Concert Series Hosts Amsterdam Guitar Trio

Chestertown, MD, March 15, 2001 — The Washington College Concert Series will host the Amsterdam Guitar Trio on Sunday, April 8, 2001 at 4:00 p.m. in the College's Tawes Theatre.

The Dutch trio has earned international fame and has been lauded as "one of the very finest guitar ensembles in the world" by Gramophone magazine.
The Trio's international success is a result of virtuoso musicianship and unique presentation. Over the years, the Trio has premiered dozens of new works ranging from the intimate oriental sounds of Dnu Huntrakal (Thailand) or Akira Nishimura (Japan), to the breathtaking compositions of Chiel Meyering (Holland) and David Dramm (USA).
At the same time, the Trio is known for its ability to cast a fresh light on music originally written for other instruments, rearranging them for three guitars. The Trio's transcription and recording of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons won them an Edison Award. Now in its 23rd year, the Trio continues to perform worldwide and appears regularly in major concert halls such as Amsterdam's Concertgebouw, London's Wigmore Hall, Berlin's Neue Philharmonie, Los Angeles' Ambassador Auditorium, and New York's Carnegie Hall.
The Washington College Concert Series is now in its 49th season. Single admission tickets are available only at the box office before performances and are $12.00 for adults and $5.00 for youth 18 years of age and under. Season tickets cost $40.00 per person and can be purchased at the box office on performance nights or by mail from the Washington College Concert Series, 300 Washington Avenue, Chestertown, MD 21620-1197.
