‘Explore the Arts’ at TFAC

Published 2:20 pm Friday, January 21, 2011

This Thursday, Jan. 27, Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) will present a performance by world-renown percussionist River Guerguerian and John Vorus who will perform on various instruments from the Himalyas to Australia.

River Guerguerian

A recent resident of Asheville, Guerguerian has performed in concert halls in Tokyo, Moscow, Rome, London, Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House and Lincoln Center. He has also recorded on more than 120 albums and film soundtracks.

Vorus’ respect for ancient tribal instruments and for the aboriginal people of Australia as they persevere to keep their ageless culture alive with the mystical vibrations of the didjeridoo has led him to the concert stage as he joins Guerguerian.
