The colorful Russian musicians will perform for the Beeville Concert Association Sunday, Oct. 9, at 3 p.m. at the Gertrude R. Jones Performing Arts Auditorium.
The concert is sponsored by the Coastal Bend Community Foundation as part of its special Spring for the Arts program in celebration of their 30 years of philanthropy in South Texas.
An Austin-based group, the Flying Balalaika Brothers introduce the unique rhythms, harmonies and sounds of Russian and Eastern European folk and classical music, using ethnic folk instruments (balalaikas, spoons, accordion), mix it with styles such as bluegrass and jazz using traditional American instruments (banjo, guitar), add a little drums to rock it out and create an invigorating and innovative fusion of world music that delights and exhilarates audiences of all ages and ethnicities.
Between touring and performing, The Flying Balalaika Brothers also present educational programs in three languages to students of both public and private schools in Texas. They will perform for elementary school students in Beeville on Monday, Oct. 10.
The concert is free to all students through high school age and to CBC students with their photo ID’s. This year any adult who brings two students through high school age will be admitted free.
Other adults will pay $10 at the door if they do not have BCA season tickets.
