This new concert series, which is presented by Helmut Jasbar, gives the audience an opportunity to hear first-hand the new musical talent that is emerging across Europe. Various musical forms — classical, jazz, and world music — meet and merge, making genre boundaries an irrelevance. Each “Fringes” evening is really two concerts – one ensemble plays in the first half, and a second performs after the interval. So over the course of four evenings a total of eight different groups will perform. Each brings to the stage their own zest for life, and each radiates their joy in music-making.
