Lee University will welcome Warp Trio for the next Performing Arts Series concert on Monday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in Pangle Hall.

Review for Warp Trio:

This atypical piano trio is an internationally-touring and cross-genre chamber music experience. It combines original material, improvisation, dynamic interpretations of popular music, and unique takes on classical favorites. The trio, known for its electrifying public performances, comprises Mikael Darmanie, piano; Josh Henderson, violin; and Ju-Young Lee, cello. Rick Martinez joins the trio as a fourth member to add percussion.

Warp Trio has performed across America, the Caribbean, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Highlights of recent seasons include performances at The LEM Festival for Experimental Music in Barcelona and the sold-out world premiere of their Triple Concerto for Piano Trio and Orchestra with Urban Playground Chamber Orchestra.

Mr. Darmanie has performed throughout the Caribbean, Europe, and the United States playing the role of soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral conductor. He has performed at the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music and in programs of Brazilian and French music at Lincoln Center Institute’s Kenan Fellowship. He is currently a doctoral student of Gilbert Kalish at SUNY Stony Brook, where he instructs undergraduate piano and music history.

Mr. Henderson enjoys a multi-faceted career as a cross-genre violinist, violist, electric bassist, and composer. He has served as a music director for Emmy award-winning Damien Escobar and has performed at numerous events across the globe, including a performance at the 2013 Hip-Hop Inaugural Ball honoring Barack Obama. He studied at the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and at New York University.

Mr. Lee has captivated audiences throughout Asia, Europe, and North and South America with a yearly schedule of more than 200 performances. He is the founder of Warp Trio, principal cellist of Core Ensemble, and guest principal with the Cape Cod Symphony. In addition to the classical field, he has collaborated on jazz, rock, and country music albums. He is a graduate of the Julliard School and trained under David Soyer and Joel Krosnick.

Mr. Martinez is a New York City drummer, percussionist, and composer. He has performed in genres ranging from classical to jazz and heavy metal throughout Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, and the United States. He studied classical percussion in his youth at Baltimore’s Peabody Conservatory and later studied at New York University, earning a degree in jazz performance.

The Warp Trio will also host a free workshop in the Curtsinger School of Music on Monday, Nov. 11, at 4 p.m.

Concert admission is free, but tickets are required due to limited seating and are available at www.showclix.com/event/performing-arts-series-warp-trio  or at the Dixon Center Box Office, beginning Monday at 3 p.m.
