Originally formed for a single concert in Florida, the trio has proven to be a match made in heaven.
Driven by lush violin-and-cello unison melodies” and a timbre that is “fuller than the brain imagines three musicians can sound,” (Jon Sobel, BlogCritics) the Gloriosa Trio burst onto the music scene in January 2014 as brightly as the flame lily for which the group is named.
The trio’s carefully-crafted thematic programs delivered in exuberant performance have appealed to diverse audiences around the country, with critics hailing the Gloriosa Trio’s debut concerts in Palm Beach and New York City as “…a special, aesthetic experience not to be ignored” (Allen Rosenberg, the Daily News)
All experienced chamber musicians with a passion for collaboration, pianist Yoonie Han, violinist Jennifer Carsillo, and cellist Kevin Bate looked to the beauty of nature to inspire them with a name for their group, finding in the Gloriosa lily a fitting symbol to describe their fervent desire to share the music they love.
The program will entail works written for the trio by composers Theodore Wiprud and Karen LeFrak. There will be a Q&A with the composers and the trio, following the concert.
