The El Dorado County Community Concert Association is thrilled to present Sonic Escape in the third concert of its six 2012-13 concert series on Tuesday, Jan. 22.

“A force of epic proportion,” Sonic Escape (formerly Silver Roots) is a flute-violin-cello trio of Juilliard graduates that performs ground-breaking original works, arrangements and improvisations crafted from the world’s songs and stories.

Humor and candid conversation draw audiences in, while backgrounds in acting, singing and dancing turn concerts into unforgettable, theatrical events.

Sonic Escape dazzles through innovation, soulful artistry, and an unparalleled technique that makes it “impossible to believe that there are only three musicians on stage.”

The incredible scope of Sonic Escape’s presentations is made possible by a rare mastery of each musician’s instruments and their commitment to inspiring, entertaining and educating audiences.

Sonic Escape weaves music, history and candid commentary into magical performances that leave audiences and presenters asking for more.

The concert programs provide a cross section of the groups work as ambassadors of music, knowledge, cultural understanding and joy.

All El Dorado Community Concerts begin at 7 p.m. and are performed at Union Mine High School, Theater at the Mine, 6530 Koki Lane in El Dorado.

Some concerts will be available to area students at no cost to the schools.
