Southern Tour a Success!
Greetings! Last Fall we enjoyed a whirlwind 2-concert tour which found us performing on Thursday October 24th at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama and on Friday October 25th at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. It was a thrill for us to perform at both of these universities. We enjoyed and greatly appreciated the abundance of enthusiasm we felt coming from students, faculty, and townspeople alike. Guest artist, violinist Andrea Belding, did a fantastic job stepping in on short notice to join us on this tour. Many thanks, Andrea!

And this is a photograph of the Emory post-concert reception with Karen Stolley, Chair of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. The Department co-sponsored our performance, which included works by both Spanish and Argentinian composers.
Charting new waters, during our coaching sessions at Auburn we worked with several ensembles, including our first saxophone group, the Nova Quartet:

Cleveland Composers Guild Concert
Hello all! Yesterday was a big day for the Trio, as we performed six modern works from five Cleveland-area composers, at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Shaker Heights. This was one of the most technically-demanding programs we have played, given the wide range of styles and the fact that these works are not from the familiar canon of 18th, 19th, and 20th century works — but given their quality, we think they may soon be much more widely played! Look for more from these gifted composers in the future…
And thanks to each of the five, to St. Paul’s, to our audience, and to the Bascom Little Fund for making it all possible!
