Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Fire & Grace!
From Classical, World and Jazz music, Riverside Fine Arts Association is known for its unique programming and offers a concert experience unlike any other you will find in Jacksonville and the surrounding area. Concert evenings always include a complimentary pre-concert and post-concert reception, as well as an artist exhibit from local area visual artists. Riverside Fine Arts Association seeks out music and art that is best experienced in the intimate setting of our venue. There is also a chance to meet both the visual artists and the concert musicians during the evening.
Fire & Grace is an eclectic collaboration between guitarist William Coulter and violinist Edwin Huizinga. This unique duo explores the connective musical elements of classical, folk and contemporary traditions from around the world. Fire & Grace’s repertoire is vast, ranging from Bach to Vivaldi, tango to Celtic tunes, traditional Bulgarian to American fiddle tunes and waltzes, all played with a sense of discovery and commitment to the elements of passion and virtuosity -- fire and grace -- found in these diverse traditions. Recent and upcoming performances have included engagements at the Carmel Bach Festival, the Mozaic Festival, the Santa Cruz Baroque Festival, the Electric Earth concerts, the Monterey Museum of Art, and with Tomaseen Foley’s A Celtic Christmas. In March and April 2017, Fire & Grace toured to New Zealand with appearances at the UPSURGE Festival, the Festival of Colour, and the New Zealand School of Music. The group’s self-titled debut album combines melodies from Argentina, Bulgaria, and Western Europe with dance elements from baroque and folk musical traditions.
