Trio con Brio Copenhagen
Meet one of Europe's hottest young ensembles, Trio con Brio Copenhagen! These bright musicians treat us to a preview of tonight's concert, which marks their Houston debut. Singer-actors from Masquerade Theatre "tease" us with excerpts from "Gypsy," the classic musical about striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee and ultimate stage mom, Mama Rose.

The young, award-winning Trio con Brio Copenhagen are sisters Soo-Jin Hong (violin) & Soo-Kyung Hong (cello) and Jens Elvekjaer (piano).  They join KUHF's Chris Johnson in the studio for music and conversation.  Presented by Houston Friends of Music, Trio con Brio Copenhagen will perform tonight, 8pm, at Rice University's Stude Concert Hall.   Listen  Download  

TFR Producer Bob Stevenson hosts a live studio session with the stars of Masquerade Theatre's new production of Gypsy, music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim & book by Arthur Laurents.  In the studio are Rebekah Dahl (Rose), Laura Gray (Louise/Gypy), Beth Hempen (June), John Gremillion (Herbie) and accompanist Sally Gardner.  Listen  Download
