Concert brings violinist, gypsy guitarist to Lakeview, April 6

Internationally known violin virtuoso, Kim Angelis, will be performing with her husband, Gypsy Guitarist, Josef Gault, in concert on Sunday, April 6 at 3 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, located at 619 S. 1st St.

They will be performing a program of popular Gypsy music and music composed by Kim.

The program will include “Dark Eyes,” a traditional Russian folk song and music from the ballet “Zorro.”

Ticket donations are priced at Individual – $15, couple – $25 and Family – $30.  On Monday, April 7, they will perform an outreach assembly for students in the Paisley school auditorium at 10 a.m.

The public is invited to attend the Paisley performance free of charge.  “Holley the concert Collie” will be accompanying them.

Kim Angelis is an internationally acclaimed violin virtuoso and composer who has successfully transcended artistic boundaries – the music is built on a solid classical foundation, but the inspiration flows freely from the Romany Diaspora of Eastern Europe, Russia, and Spain.  Angelis’ brilliant compositions showcase the beauty, power, and excitement of her playing.   “… on the main stage is Kim Angelis, Gypsy-inspired violin virtuoso… joined by guitarist and partner, Josef Gault.

Their high-energy musicianship thrills audiences at every performance.”

Josef, “The Wild Hungarian,” is a native of Detroit, Michigan.  He graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a major in industrial arts and a minor in music.

His Romany-styled guitar artistry has been inspired by such flamenco luminaries as Manitas de Plata and Sabicas, and by the Russian band, Loyko.

From 2003 through 2011, Josef was the Technical Production Manager and Cultural Coordinator for the Clatsop Community College Performing Arts Center. Currently, he is a rotating host of the very popular “All Kinds of Folk” radio program on KMUN/KTCB, Astoria.

Funding for the Lake Arts Council’s season has been provided by The National Endowment for the Arts, Lake County Cultural Coalition, Oregon Arts Commission, US Bank, Meyer Memorial Trust, Pacific Power Foundation, and The Collins Foundation.
