Anointed by Jazz Weekly as "the most lyrical piano player of our time," Kenny Barron and his stellar trio (featuring Ray Drummond on bass and Ben Riley on drums) will hold down, or tear up, the Leighton Concert Hall stage. Jazz fans (and anyone within earshot) should be sure to take this opportunity to enjoy "one of the top jazz pianists in the world," —Los Angeles Times.

Connect + Relate | Jazz is America's classical music. We suggest adding classical pianist Jan Lisiecki to a jazz package including Hot 8 Brass Band and Paris Combo.

The simplest of ideas lead to extraordinary musical statements in a program featuring the world premiere of a new work by Timothy Andres entitled Austerity Measures. Andres describes his new work as a "string quartet for percussion." Notre Dame faculty member Carmen-Helena Téllez and the vocalists from the Sacred Music Program join Third Coast for a performance of Steve Reich's iconic Proverb. The piece, for 5 singers and 4 percussionists, is set to a single line of text from philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein: "How small a thought it takes to fill a whole life."

Austerity Measures commissioned by the University of Notre Dame's DeBartolo Performing Arts Center and Sidney K. Robinson.

This engagement is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest, which is generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts with additional contribution from Indiana Arts Commission.


Intergalactic Nemesis Books 1 & 2
Space Invaders

Sat, Feb 1 at 2 p.m. (Family Performance)
Sat, Feb 1 at 7:30 p.m.


A sci-fi comic book comes to life as a vintage radio play the Austinist describes as "totally nuts and a ton of fun!" Three actors, retro Foley sound effects and a live keyboard score send you careening through an otherworldly adventure. With projected comics soaring above the stage, a full day of Nemesis satisfies in two giddy parts.

"Book 1: Target Earth"
Family Performance
It's 1933, and Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Molly Sloan and sidekick Timmy Mendez stumble into a plot by sinister sludge monsters from the Planet Zygon to take over Earth. To stop it, a ragtag group of heroes take the fight all the way to Planet Zygon. If you missed our March 2010 show (or just want a do over), this is the perfect chance to catch up. Best for ages 8+

"Book 2: Robot Rising"

The battle is rejoined. Now, Molly Sloan must try to rescue a robot emissary, Timmy grapples with his newfound powers and a Soviet spy hunts the good Dr. Webster. It's what you would expect from a sequel—bigger, a more complex story and new, darker characters. Best for ages 8+

The highly anticipated third piece of the orchestral tryptych, commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, premieres September 2013 at the Hollywood Bowl beginning an international tour. In Fluid Infinites, Artistic Director Jacques Heim contrasts the erratic, mercurial motion of human bodies with the perpetual motion of the cosmos. Set to Philip Glass' Symphony No. 3, the performers explore a vast horizon, reaching forward and yearning to discover the next chapter of life. The new freerunning, skater-inspired Transit Space rounds out a knock-your-socks off evening.

Fluid Infinities, the final installment in a trilogy that premiered in 2008 with Foreign Bodies, represents the future Diavolo's dancer-athletes were exploring at the end of 2011's Fearful Symmetries.

Before a song by (Black Eyed Peas) was beamed from Mars to Earth, Kronos, now celebrating its 40th anniversary, worked with NASA to record radio emissions of Saturn, turn them into audible frequencies and incorporate those space sounds into Sun Rings. The evening-length spectacular is set to visual designs including rarely seen video images from the Jet Propulsion Laboratories, the lead U.S. center for robotic exploration of the solar system.

Solas delivers the raw instrumental genius, powerful drive and dynamic vocal blend no other band since the Bothy Band has achieved. Even after 15 years, they remain at the peak of power. Gravitating toward social justice with selections like "Pastures of Plenty" and Springsteen's "The Ghost of Tom Joad," Seamus Eagan and the crew live up to their name: light.

"It's an Irish traditional band bearing all the marks of greatness." —The Wall Street Journal

Latin ballroom's Paso Doble gains interest and authenticity from the perfect art form of music, dance and song born centuries ago in southern Spain: flamenco. Maintaining traditional repertoire while adding expansive new works, Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana presents an intensely beautiful evening of folkloric mastery, in what The New York Times has called "an infectiously joyful celebration of music and dance." Experience the American company's 30th anniversary tour.

Well done! In a cohort of quartets playing at the highest level, violinists Alexander Pavlovsky (first) and Sergei Bresler (second), cellist Kyril Zlotnikov and violist Ori Kam display the discipline of a top orchestra string section with the nuances of a chamber choir. Recently awarded the BBC Music Magazine Award in Chamber Music for an unprecedented third time, these gentlemen routinely inspire "Bravo!"

Sporting Gramophone's Best Chamber Music and Album of the Year recordings, it is little wonder The London Times calls the Prague-based Pavel Hass "the world's most exciting string quartet." Take your musical appreciation to the next level as the ensemble renders three probing, daring works in exquisite form, beginning with a vibrant and eerie sound world of buzzing and modal explosions in Janáček's "Kreutzer Sonata."

Paris Combo transports you to a great little club in historic Montparnasse on the Left Bank. Their euphoric twist on the chanson tradition captures the taste for life with the attitude of classic American jazz, the charm of Swing and the smoky edge of manouch (gypsy) jazz and Spanish melodies. Anchored by the vocals of the stunning Belle du Berry, Paris Combo plays an evening that feels like a modern soundtrack for the ultimate cocktail party.

The Romani or gypsy sound fascinated 19th-century composers like Liszt and Brahms. Lakotas enchants with that sublimely romantic classical music seamlessly blended with jazz, pop, Broadway and film scores into one sweeping, dramatic, hyper-kinetic Gypsy rave. Lakatos is technically amazing in blazingly fast solos and slow sections of notes that sustain to reach the deepest recesses of the hall. On everything from Michel Legrand to Fats Waller to Piazzola, a crack young band and Lakotas (with his signature handlebar mustache) won't disappoint.
