Nick Parnell – Vibes Virtuoso

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 29 May 2016

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.

“Dazzling dexterity… balanced with supreme delicacy.” – The Advertiser
“Nick Parnell is a complete and utter star. A brilliant and beautiful performer.” – Emma Ayres, ABC Classic FM
“Parnell wields the mallets with the nonchalance of mastery…virtuosity worthy of the highest praise.” – The West Australian
