Igudesman & Joo
Happiness! Is that not what we are all looking for? Well, look no further, because classical music’s comedy megastars Igudesman and Joo are brining their hilarious brand of musical mayhem to Winston-Salem with this unmissable show entitled, simply, Happy. The ultra-virtuosic violin and piano duo have reached an audience of millions thanks to their brilliant YouTube videos that combine all your favourites from Strauss, Beethoven, Mozart and Tchaikovsky (often all at the same time) with their own signature humour. The list of artists Igudesman and Job have worked with read like a GRAMMY awards list – everyone from Billy Joel and Hans Zimmer to John Malkovich.
