Acclaimed Violinist to Perform on Washington Island

An “acclaimed soloist with extraordinary abilities,” violinist Andrew Sords will perform June 27, 7:30 pm, at the Trueblood Performing Arts Center on Washington Island. Joining Sords on stage will be pianist Elizabeth DeMio and baritone Daniel Singer.

Even though Sords is performing all over the world this summer, he’s excited to be playing at Trueblood because “the views of rolling waves and scenic foliage, Lake Michigan, and its shores can’t be beat!” 

Sords began playing piano and violin at a very early age, and he credits musicians with diverse styles for his inspiration. He described his iTunes library as “everything from Bach to Beethoven to Beyoncé.” Sords’ own album, Transcendence, showcases dramatic, New Age pieces and has been both a commercial and critical success. 

Some of Sords’ favorite past performances include playing the national anthem for the Cleveland Indians, performing for LGBT benefits and playing in exotic beach locations.

Although he looks forward to all of his engagements, Sords said, “I’m happiest when [I’m] on stage with romantic tunes or gypsy melodies, so on June 27, my favorite place will be Washington Island!”
