A CLASSICAL contemporary duo whose members have appeared in the West End and in jazz clubs around the world will be playing at a bar in the town next month (October, 2013).
Erin Cornell and Marina Lieberman from The Cornell Lieberman Duo will be performing at Bar des Arts on Tuesday, October 1 from 8pm.
Sara Burks, Co-owner of Bar des Arts, which is located opposite the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Millbrook, said: “We’re delighted to have the duo performing at the bar again. They have been extremely popular with our audiences in the past so it’s a real treat to have them back.
“The girls are superbly talented and it is inspiring to watch and hear them play. On the night they’ll be playing tracks from their repertoire, which includes songs from the musicals of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gershwin and unique arrangements of modern tracks by Madonna, Queen and U2.”
Erin, who is 27, previously played the part of Elphaba in theatre show ‘Wicked’ in Japan after graduating in Musical Theatre from Australia’s Victorian College of Arts. She has also appeared on the international tour for ‘Bohemian Rhapsody – West End Stars Sing Queen.’

Since completing her Master of Music degree in piano performance the 28-year-old has gone on to work on her debut solo album ‘Pianology’, which combines symphonic versions of modern classics.
Marina will also perform some pieces from her classical repertoire on the night.
Sara added: “This is a night not to be missed. The duo has performed in stage musicals, concert halls and jazz clubs around the world, including Australia, Japan, Asia and Europe, so we are extremely lucky to have them on the Bar des Arts stage.”
