      hi
      for those of you who feel akin to and love eastern europe,
      this will be a very pleasant evening

      *Danubius (www.danubiussf.com <http://www.danubiussf.com/>) *

      *David Skuse*, /violin, prim, dumbek/; *Jutka Mandoki*, /accordion,/
      /cimbalom/; *Barbara Deutsch*, /clarinet, soprano and alto saxophone,
      fluier/* ; Lea Ivanovic*, /string bass, utogardon; / *Cooper Gorrie*,
      /tambura, guitar/. Also featuring guest vocalist *Litz ("The Opera Lady")
      Plummer, */soprano/

      The members of Danubius have lived in and studied the music of Hungary and
      Romania, and employ that background, and such instruments as the Hungarian
      concert-size cimbalom (hammered dulcimer) and Romanian fluier (flute), to
      present the deeply soulful melodies and dances of Hungary, Romania, Serbia,
      Macedonia, and Russia in their traditional ethnic forms, but enlivened by
      the performing artists' interpretative vitality. The result is an emotive
      tapestry of sounds that preserves the distinct character of each musical
      style, including regional Gypsy music.

      David Skuse started Danubius in 1990 after returning from a 3-year stay in
      Hungary. Initially, the group specialized in Hungarian folk dance music, but
      over the years its repertoire expanded to include music from other
      countries, especially Romania, Serbia, Macedonia, and Bulgaria. Combining
      traditional folk with Western instruments gives Danubius its distinctive
      sound. Danubius was the house band for years in San Francisco at the now
      bygone restaurants "*Hungarian Sausage Factory*" and "*Bistro E Europe*".
      The group has appeared in concert with the *San Francisco Symphony*, 5 times
      at the *Ethnic Dance Festival,* *Clarion** **Music** **Center*, the *Red
      Poppy*, and many other Bay Area venues.

      This will be the farewell concert for our bassist, Lea Ivanovic, who is
      leaving to study in the Masters Program of the *Manhattan School of Music*
      in New York. Also leaving with her is our guitarist, Cooper Gorrie.
