Luxembourg Jazz Trio to perform in St. Cloud



The R-D-W Jazz Trio from the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg will perform a concert at the Cathedral of St. Mary in St. Cloud at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 8. This concert is one of 10 concerts in a series sponsored by the Luxembourg American Cultural Society based in Wisconsin. The R-D-W Trio is composed of three young Luxembourg jazz musicians considered to be some of the country's finest: Michel Reis (piano), Marc Demuth (bass), Paul Wiltgen (drums). The trio will also perform in Rochester, Minnesota, Dubuque, Iowa, Chicago and Aurora, Illinois, La Crosse and Sheboygan, Wisconsin and New York City.

Reis, Demuth and Wiltgen formed the R-D-W Trio in 1998 while in high school. The group performed on a regular basis in and around Luxembourg for several years. In 2003, the Trio took a break from performing when the three musicians moved different places across Europe and the United States in order to pursue their individual musical studies and careers. The musicians have all pursued graduate studies in music and have performed with some of the world's top jazz musicians. Now reunited, this impressive collection of individual talent is once again eager to share their musical gifts as well as their new compositions with their audiences.

The concert is free of charge and all are invited to attend. For more information contact the Luxembourg American Cultural Society at (262) 476-5086, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Or visit its website at www.luxamcultural
