The Feb. 7 Thursday Live! show will feature guitarist Matt Grasso with Trio Seven and cellist Dan Barker.

Thursday Live! is a continuing series of concerts held the first Thursday of each month at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. All shows are free and open to all ages. The shows start at 7:30 p.m.

Now in its third year, Trio Seven is an all extended seven-string ensemble that covers a range of styles, from baroque to romantic to impressionistic to modern.

Trio Seven will perform works by Dvorak, Rachmaninov, Debussy, Stravinsky, Satie, Bach, Brahms, Bizet and Grasso, as well as famous movie themes from the 1930s to present day. In addition to classical masterworks, they also incorporate improvisation works.

The trio was founded in 2010 when Grasso, a Davis guitarist and composer, inaugurated a new ensemble aesthetic with his composition “7th Creation.” A unique collaboration featuring three extended seven-string guitars, Trio Seven seeks to expand the repertory of the instrument through transcription and original works. Its current members are Grasso, Matthew Foley and Harry Stoddard.

Dan Barker began to study cello at age 9. His primary teachers have been Linda Unkefer (Milwaukee Symphony), Don White (Cleveland Orchestra), David Chickering (Chicago Symphony), Crispin Campbell and Andor Toth. Barker has had a private cello studio for more than 10 years and has been teaching in Davis for the past five. Although he doesn’t abide strictly by any one teaching method, he has had teacher training in the Orff and Suzuki methods and draws from these along with others in order to best suit each student.

All donations collected from our shows go directly to the musicians. For more information, visit www.trioseven.com.
