Musicians Michael and Daniela Folker have combined their skills in music and their passion for magic to create an exciting new program called AbracaMusic. Designed to enlighten audiences to the wonderful experience of live music and the visual thrill of magical illusions, the show merges the two art forms into a mesmerizing and unforgettable concert. Accompanied by the lyrical sounds of Daniela's violin, Michael combines his magical skills, amazing illusions, and percussive talents to take listeners on a magical journey to exciting far-away places. As the music and magic interact, audiences will be treated to surprises, humorous interplay, and mystifying magic.
Available as an educational program or a concert performance, AbracaMusic is an energetic and elegant new art form which can best be described as "Chamber Magic."
