After two sold-out shows at Meadow Brook Hall in August, the unique, well-known Romanian electric quartet, Amadeus, will be returning to perform a magical Christmas Concert at the Emerald Theatre on December 22.
Amadeus—Andreea Runceanu, Patricia Cimpoiasu, Bianca Gavrilescu, and Laura Lazarescu, includes strings, piano, and vocals—a classical crossover with a rock touch. Hailing from Romania, they are one of the most appreciated electric quartets worldwide and the uncontested leader of classical crossover music. Blending classical and modern sounds, and using all electric instruments, Amadeus are Yamaha Europe Artists that have found international success, including five albums on a major label in Romania and a YouTube platform with over 200 million views and close to 600,000 subscribers.
The quartet, known for their unique musical style featuring two electric violins, an electric cello, and an electric piano, began in 2000. Since 2010, they have operated as independent artists, recently releasing their sixth album, Joy, on their own in 2020. Spanning genres from new classical to the traditional sounds of various cultures, Joy features 14 original tracks and represents the group’s goal of sharing the “essential parts of the soul of Amadeus, impatient to touch the souls of fans worldwide.”
Graduates of the National University of Music in Bucharest, Amadeus has performed in over 50 countries spanning four continents to date, garnering fans in Europe, South America, Asia, and North America. They played their debut show at Meadowbrook Hall in Rochester in August of 2022. The show, which brought Meadowbrook one of their largest audiences, sold out in less than four weeks, also a record for the venue. This past summer, Amadeus returned to Meadowbrook for two additional sold-out shows. The group is in talks to broadcast their performances in the future on PBS and other major venues across the United States.
From their first performances on stage to now, the group—featuring Andreea on violin, Patricia on cello, Bianca on violin, and Laura on piano, plus vocal by all members, has focused on their mission of engaging youth with classical music and inspiring them to learn to play an instrument, as well as “bringing people of all backgrounds closer to the joys and wonders of classical music.” These performances have included such notable events as the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the wedding of a Qatar royal family member as well as the Duke of Seville and the birthday of the president of Kazakhstan.
Now, this celebrated group is coming to Mount Clemens, with a Christmas concert at the Emerald Theatre on Friday, December 22 at 7:00 PM. “This will be one of the best shows of 2023. Their music is full of energy, and their stage appearance and performance are captivating,” says David Gagnon. David’s Cellar 104 Boutique Winery in Downtown Mount Clemens is the Presenting Show Sponsor, and his company, TCB Enterprise, is the Producer and North American agent for Amadeus.
The concert, says Amadeus member Andreea, “promises a diverse repertoire—carols included—that transcends language barriers, connecting people through the universal language of music. Whether you are seeking a romantic evening with a date or a joyful gathering with friends, this Christmas concert promises an unforgettable experience.”
Ticket selections, starting at $49, include General Admission, Tables, and Opera Box seating, as well as sponsorships and Meet & Greet tickets, says David. Tickets are currently on sale at TheEmeraldTheatre.com. “Don’t miss this opportunity to let Amadeus transport you to a world of enchantment on December 22,” concludes Andreea. “Get ready for a holiday experience you’ll cherish forever!”
