Three Grammy winners—harmonic virtuoso Howard Levy, cellist Eugene Friesen, and frame drum master Glen Velez—present their original work as Trio Globo, integrating jazz, world folk traditions, classical music, and blues into an elegant and playful unity.

Together they have created a style and sound that integrates jazz, world folk traditions, classical music, and blues with spontaneous and combustible interplay. Combined with the rhythmic and emotional energy of the Berklee World Strings, Trio Globo’s original music is a journey into the heart of diversity in a program that erases borders between genres.

The evening will include Trio Globo’s original versions of Piazzolla’s Five Tango Sensations, Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances, and will feature top student soloists from around the world. 

Berklee World Strings is the flagship string orchestra of the Berklee String Department. Its more than 40 members represent nearly every continent, with students from Jordan, Spain, Ecuador, Turkey, Canada, China, and the United States, among other countries. Berklee World Strings performs original compositions and arrangements featuring the improvisational abilities of its players in music inspired by jazz and folk from all over the world. This string ensemble provides opportunities for its players to compose, arrange, and solo while achieving a high standard of precision and stylistic diversity.
