3 Leg Torso to perform at Marylhurst

Portland’s cinematic world chamber ensemble 3 Leg Torso will perform a solo concert at Marylhurst University’s new Lajos Balogh Performance Shell on Sept. 1, beginning at 5 p.m.

The performance will feature original compositions and traditional favorites from all over the globe.

3 Leg Torso formed in 1996 as a violin, cello and accordion trio with the mission of creating original modern chamber music for the group’s unique instrumentation. Through the years the ensemble has expanded both its musical mission and the size of the band; now a quintet, the group performs original compositions based on an eclectic synthesis of chamber music, tango, klezmer, Latin and Roma (gypsy) music.

As principal composers, founding members Bela R. Balogh (violin) and Courtney Von Drehle (accordion) provide the core of 3 Leg Torso’s sound. They are joined by the consummate mallets/percussion of T.J. Arko and Gary Irvine and Mike Murphy on acoustic bass.

The performance and parking are free.
