Also, please note, tickets are on sale online for our International Classical Guitar Series debut concert featuring Russian classical guitarist and 2013 GFA winner, Anton Baranov. Mr Baranov performs on January 24 at 7:30 at our new location, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Sarasota (more info below or online).
Trio Voilà is a mixed ensemble comprised of a flute, a viola and a guitar. Offering a unique musical experience, this combination of instruments has a long tradition with original compositions from the 19th and 20th centuries. Along with new, groundbreaking and exciting music by contemporary composers programming can be varied and unconventional. By nature, the tone creation of a wind, bowed and plucked instrument is very different, therefore producing sound colors that cannot be created by traditional wind or string ensembles.
Dr Jane Hoffman is a sought after flute teacher and soloist, who is currently on the music faculty of State College of Florida in Bradenton. She enjoys working at Sarasota County public schools, where she has been an active music pedagogue since over ten years. As a performer, Jane has been touring nationally and internationally, and she has worked with the Sarasota Opera Orchestra, and the Craig Turley Orchestra in Tampa.
Classical guitarist, Thomas Koch performed at venues in New York City, Berlin, and Paris. He performed with many orchestras on Florida’s west coast as soloist, and he has appeared on radio and TV shows throughout the area with his fellow Trio Voilá members. Thomas is on the music faculty of State College of Florida, and Booker High School. As the founding president of GuitarSarasota, he has invited a large number of international guitar virtuosos to perform recitals in Sarasota.
Laura Jensen-Jennings is a member of the Sarasota Orchestra is equally talented on the viola and the violin. As the principal second violinist of the Sarasota Orchestra, Laura has enjoyed a successful career with the orchestra since many years. As a violist, she follows her passion in performing chamber music with Trio Voilá. Her passion to teach has put her in collaboration with many of Sarasota’s finest schools and music institutions.

Anton Baranov Kicks Off GuitarSarasota’s Ninth Annual 2015 International Classical Guitar Season
Saturday, January 24, 2015
Russian guitarist Anton Baranov is a prize-winner of more then 15 prestigious international guitar competitions, including the Koblenz Guitar Competition, Andrés Segovia Competition, Agustín Barrios Competition, Robert Vidal Competition, and Pittaluga Guitar Competition. At the height of his young career, he won both the Guitar Foundation of America International Concert Artist Competition and the Francisco Tárrega Competition in 2013. Known for his daring interpretation and innovative programming, guitarist and composer Roland Dyens calls him, a real musician, one of those rare guitarists who are able to have their attendees almost forget the instrument they play, managing to have them focus on the expressivity of the music and only this.
As part of his prize from winning the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) competition, Mr. Baranov will embark on a 50-city concert tour throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, and Brazil, and has just recorded his first album on the Naxos label. Mr. Baranov has been a D’Addario artist since 2013. He currently teaches at his alma mater, the St. Petersburg Conservatory. Anton Baranov was born in 1984 in the Northwest region of Russia. He graduated from the famous St. Petersburg State Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory in 2010 under grants from the Russian Ministry of Culture and the Russian Performing Arts Foundation.
