Warp trio to Perform at Lee University

Not your typical piano trio, the Warp Trio (Mikael Darmanie- piano, Ju Young Lee- cello, and Josh Henderson- violin) is an internationally touring cross-genre chamber music experience.

Reflecting the combination of Juilliard trained members, juxtaposed with members steeped in rock and jazz styles, the one of a kind trio is known for their electrifying public performances.

The Warp Trio will perform Monday, November 11th at 7:30 in Lee University’s Pangle Hall.

Tickets are available by calling the Dixon Center Box Office at 423-614-8343, or picking up tickets at the box office during weekday operating hours of 3-6 p.m.
