Serebryany Performs in Concert with "Trio +" at Huntingdon

Trio Plus

Montgomery, Ala.—Three acclaimed musicians in piano, violin, and cello will reunite to perform in the ensemble "Trio +"  (pronounced trio plus) for the Elizabeth Belcher Cheek Concert Series at Huntingdon College Monday, January 17, at 7:00 p.m. in the College's Ligon Chapel, Flowers Hall.  The concert, endowed by Mr. Ben F. Cheek III and his family in memory of his first wife, a Huntingdon alumna, is free and open to the public.  The closest parking is available in the Smith Music Building and Narrow Lane Road lots on the Huntingdon campus.

A member of the Huntingdon College Department of Music faculty since 2008, renowned pianist Vadim Serebryany performs in Trio + with long-time friends and musical collaborators violinist Yosuke Kawasaki and cellist Wolfram Koessel.  Kawasaki is the concertmaster of the National Arts Centre Orchestra (Canada), principle guest concertmaster of the Century Orchestra Osaka, and a member of Mito Chamber and Saito Kinen Orchestras.  Koessel is the cellist of the American String Quartet, a faculty member at the Manhattan School of Music, and serves as music director for the Mark Morris Dance Group.

The members of Trio + have performed together in various combinations across five continents for 12 years.  Their first critically acclaimed performance was given at the Sydney Festival 2003, Australia, in collaboration with the Mark Morris Dance Group.  Their Japan debut took place in 2008 at Symphony Hall and Suntory Hall with Century Orchestra Osaka, performing the Beethoven Triple Concerto.
