Nick Parnell, one of the world’s greatest vibraphone players, will re-imagine some of music’s greatest ‘hits’ in this inspirational and energetic show.
Expect something for everyone with favourites such as Gershwin’s Summertime, Albeniz’s Tango and Handel’s Arrival of the Queen of Sheba.
Guest pianist Michael Ireace (Winner of the 2008 Royal Over-Seas League Music Competition) will join Nick in the concert. Ranging from the technically challenging to sheer lyrical beauty in the space of a heartbeat, the vibraphone and the piano meld superbly together.
Parnell manages to break down the elitism of classical music and make it available for everyone to enjoy – something he achieves with enviable mastery through Vibes Virtuoso.
