The violin is one of the most popular and affordable instruments around - who hasn't found one in the family closet that a family member used to play?
In this extraordinary concert, versatile violinist Cathy Irons together with top jazz musicians, Dan Robertson (piano), Peter Fleming (double bass, guitar), and Doug Brush (drums) explore the vibrancy and versatility of the violin, traveling through time and genres in styles from classical, to folk and jazz and beyond.
Douce Ambiance literally means Sweet Sounds and the ensemble are poised to captivate audiences with their warm tones and creative musicianship. Join them on a journey from the dazzling brilliance of the classicalera to swing and latin, through lively folk tunes, across to the syncopated rhythms of Brazil. The programme includes Gershwin's timeless "I Loves You Porgy, "Paganini's "Variations" and the compelling "Firedance" from Riverdance, amongst popular swing and jazz numbers by Miles Davis, Chick Corea, and other works. Prepare for hidden surprises and gems as Cathy Irons shares Consuelo Velázquez's "Bésame Mucho" through the deeper sonority of the viola.

The newly formed Douce Ambiance brings a wealth of international expertise, rich musicality and virtuosity to the stage, and toured successfully through South Island last year, to critical acclaim and standing ovations, with multiple requests to return. Described as “a magic whole” and bringing “remarkable soul dancing joy,” Douce Ambiance promises an unforgettable concert that will keep your toes-tapping into for weeks to come. Don't miss your chance to be part of this musical celebration, where the depth and beauty of the violin is revealed.
