3 Leg Torso

First Presbyterian Church
823 SE Lane Ave., Roseburg, OR
3 Leg Torso formed in 1996 as a violin, cello and accordion trio with the mission of creating original modern chamber music for their unique instrumentation. Over the following years, the ensemble has expanded both its musical mission and its size to become a quartet that now performs original compositions based on an eclectic synthesis of chamber music, tango, klezmer, Latin, and Roma (Gypsy) music. As principal composers, founding members Béla R. Balogh (violin, trumpet, octave mandolin) and Courtney Von Drehle (accordion, saxophone) provide the core of 3 Leg Torso’s sound. They are joined by the consummate mallets & percussion of T.J. Arko and the gentleman of the acoustic bass, Milo Fultz.
Umpqua Chamber Orchestra will be playing some of their favorites and featuring local musicians
