Arts in the Village Presents the Boston Trio on February 24

On Saturday, February 24, Arts in the Village will present a performance by the highly regarded Boston Trio. Since their formation in 1997, the Boston Trio has become one of today’s most exciting chamber ensembles. Acclaimed for their superb sense of ensemble and wondrous balance, these virtuosic musicians are committed to creating exceptional and daring performances of standard and contemporary repertoire. This concert will feature works for piano trio written largely before the nineteenth century.

Violinist Irina Muresanu, cellist Jonah Ellsworth, and pianist Heng-Jin Park each have distinguished careers as soloists, recitalists, and chamber musicians and have appeared with major orchestras and at premier chamber music festivals throughout the United States and Europe. Mr. Ellsworth has performed as soloist with the Boston Symphony, Akron Symphony, Boston Philharmonic, Jacksonville Symphony, and New Bedford Symphony. Ms. Muresanu, who has appeared as soloist with the Boston Philharmonic, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, and other top international orchestras, is the recipient of top prizes at the Montreal International Competition and the Queen Elizabeth Violin Competition. Ms. Park, who made her solo debut with the Boston Pops at the age of 15, is the founding member of the Boston Trio and founder and artistic director of the Halcyon Music Festival.

Highlights for the 2017-2018 season include the Trio’s second performance at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall and tours from California to upstate New York. Recent appearances include concerts at UCLA, Detroit Pro Musica, Maui Classical Music Festival, Rockport Chamber Music Festival, and performances of Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the Boston Philharmonic. The Trio has coached chamber music at the Tanglewood Institute of Music, has served as Ensemble-in-Residence at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and has been in residence at the New England Conservatory Preparatory School. The individual members serve on the faculties of the New England Conservatory, the Boston Conservatory, Harvard University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and are in demand as master class teachers throughout the United States, Asia, and Europe.

This concert will take place on Saturday, February 24, at 7:30 p.m., at Goff Memorial Hall, 124 Bay State Road, in Rehoboth, MA 02769. Admission is $18 for adults, $16 for seniors, and $8 for students and children. The doors open at 7:00 p.m. for a wine bar, and tickets are available at the door. First-come, first-seated.
