Juilliard Educated Ahn Trio Coming to Schauer Center
January 22, 2014 – Hartford, WI – The vibrant and original Ahn Trio will be showcasing their innovative spirit at the Schauer Arts & Activities Center on Sunday, February 16 at 3:00 pm. The three sisters’ ever evolving vision is breathing new life into standard piano-trio literature and redefining chamber music.
Born in Seoul, Korea and educated at Juilliard in New York City, the members of the Ahn Trio are renowned for dissolving the barriers between art forms. Cellist Maria, pianist Lucia, and violinist Angella have successfully fused their work with dancers, pop singers, DJs, photographers, and even kite makers. Perhaps the most successful example of this was their collaboration with the David Parsons Dance Company, which extensively toured to much critical acclaim.
With an enviable combination of talent and style, the Ahn Trio has long been a media darling of the international press. After a magazine premiere in Time’s cover story “Asian American Whiz Kids,” these women have frequented the fashion pages of Vogue and GQ, and were named three of People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People in 2003. In addition to their success with the media, the Ahn Trio has created several successful albums featuring the works of Ravel and Villa-Lobos, Dvorak, Suk, Shostakovich, and their own creations like the self-produced Lullaby for My Favorite Insomniac.
The performance will be preceded by a free SoundBites from 2:00-2:30 pm. Advance reservations recommended to guarantee seating.
