ITALIAN VIOLINIST LUCA CIARLA OFFERS “MUSIC WITHOUT LIMITS,” ON STAGE AT THE LCCC ON JUNE 7
LINCOLN CITY – Creative and surprising Italian violinist Luca Ciarla will perform his innovative one-man show, “Il Violino,” at the Lincoln City Cultural Center on Tuesday, June 7. It’s “music without limits,” a show that defies easy description but with performed by a world-class violinist who has appeared in festivals around the world. It will include original arrangements of Italian folk tunes and music from the Mediterranean, on the violin as well as small toy instruments and the power of the loop pedal. It’s a solo string band, with Ciarla playing all the parts, along with singing, whistling and using the fiddle as a drum, guitar or cello.
Or is it? Clearly, Ciarla’s “Il Violino” is a genre-bending show that must be heard to be understood. Oregon Coast audiences will get that chance on June 7 at the LCCC, 540 NE Hwy. 101 in Lincoln City. Doors to the LCCC auditorium will open at 6:30 pm, with the two-set show to begin at 7 pm. Volunteers will sell Northwest beer and wines, My Petite Sweet cookies and brownies, and Mountain Man snacks before the show and during intermission. Tickets are $15 in advance, $17 at the door, with $2 discount for LCCC members. To purchase, head to www.lincolncity-culturalcenter.org, or call 541-994-9994.
“Il Violino” has been called “a magical acoustic seduction, in which everyone can find familiar influences, from genuine folk to sophisticated jazz” (Vera Lisi, Il Fatto Quotidiano, Italy). A reviewer from Volksblad, in South Africa, wrote “The music of (Luca Ciarla) cannot be labeled. It is neither jazz nor classical, contemporary nor folk. It contains elements of all these styles and even more, but the most prominent characteristic is imaginative power. It is music with color and feeling. Music without limits.”
