Firenze String Ensemble

Winchester Cultural Center is delighted to welcome back the Firenze String Ensemble, which will tour the history of string music in the lively “From Beethoven to Bluegrass” at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 14 in theWinchester Theater, 3130 S. McLeod Drive, just north of Desert Inn Road. Admission is $10 in advance, $12 the day of the show.

The six women who make up the ensemble are some of the finest string players in Nevada: Rebecca Ramsey and Gerri Thompson, violins; Hanna Suk and Tiana Harjo, violas; and Moonlight Tran and Lindsey Springer, cellos. Individually the musicians have played for such shows as “The Lion King,” “Phantom – The Las Vegas Spectacular,” “Spamalot” and “The Producers,” and worked with Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis, Jr., Air Supply, Beyonce, Andrea Bocelli, Luciano Pavarotti and countless chamber groups and orchestras, including the Las Vegas Philharmonic and the opening of The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.

The concert will cover such a wide range of musical styles that the group has added four musical guests, namely Martin Radunz, clarinet; Joel Ferguson, banjo; Aaron Ramsey, piano; and Geoff Neuman, bass.

The group will perform three works by the contemporary American violinist, Mark O’Connor: “Appalachian Waltz for Tutti Ensemble,” F.C’s “Jig for Violin and Cello,” “Chief Sitting in the Rain for Violin, Cello, Bass and Banjo” and “College Hornpipe for Violin, Cello, Bass and Banjo;” as well as Beethoven’s Quintet in C minor, op. 29. Becky Ramsey has arranged Ervin Rouse’s blazing fiddle tune, “Orange Blossom Special,” into “Orange Blossoms for Tutti Ensemble.”
