Karin Schaupp & Umberto Clerici

27 Mar - 28 Mar 2018

2018 coffee concerts series

Karin Schaupp guitar
Umberto Clerici cello

Karin Schaupp and Umberto Clerici first shared a concert stage as part of the 2015 Musica Viva Festival, where the combination of guitar and cello proved a major hit. In 2018, these superb musicians bring a program of songs from across five centuries, reimagined for guitar and cello.

The program takes the audience on a journey through life, from childhood to a reflection on death and all that comes in between: love, jealousy, family, illness, battles and joys.
