A city music concert is adding two new strings to its bow, with the inclusion of a violin playing double act.
Vladimir and Anton Jablokov, originally from Slovakia, have been announced as special guest performers for Katherine Jenkins’ highly anticipated appearance at Herrington Country Park on Friday, May 6.
The brothers, who now live in Ireland, hail from four generations of professional musicians and have been playing together for more their 20 years, as well as pursuing successful solo careers.
In 2014 they joined forces for Two Brothers, a successful stage show highlighting their individual talents as violinists and improvisers.
An album of the same name was released in 2015, with the duo paying tribute to the great composers of the past, as well as more modern favourites from the stage and screen.
Vladimir and Anton will now join Katherine and The National Symphony Orchestra for the first in a series of summer concerts being staged in Sunderland by The Northern Sessions, with more big names still to be announced.
“During the past decade Vladimir Jablokov has established himself as one of the leading lights in Ireland’s classical music scene,” said a Northern Sessions spokesperson.
“Since joining forces with his younger brother Anton their career has gone from strength to strength and we’re absolutely delighted that they will be crossing the sea to perform in Sunderland alongside Katherine and the National Symphony Orchestra.”
Tickets for Katherine Jenkins supported by National Symphony Orchestra and Vladimir and Anton are priced at £33 each and available from www.thenorthernsessions.co.uk.
