Elena Urioste And Tom Poster Headshots With Violin
Location

The Mansion at Strathmore

Run Time

60-70 minutes, no intermission

During 2020’s lockdown early in the COVID-19 pandemic, acclaimed violinist Elena Urioste and multi-talented pianist Tom Poster began to collaborate as a way of keeping their minds sharp, fingers busy, and community smiling. Sharing videos of their multi-genre musical offerings on social media with the hashtag #UriPosteJukebox, the two embodied what it means to inject imagination and fun into performance during a time of limitation.

Urioste and Poster are the proud recipients of a 2020 Royal Philharmonic Society Inspiration Award for the Jukebox project, as well as a 2021 RPS Enterprise Fund Trailblazer Grant. Their subsequent studio album, THE JUKEBOX ALBUM, inspired by the project and recorded for Orchid Classics, won a 2022 BBC Music Magazine Award. Selections on the album include everything from Cole Porter and Stephen Sondheim to Gabriel Fauré and even traditional Irish folk.
