Their focus is on programming classical music from all over the world and from different periods that sheds light on issues of our time and provokes us to consider our common humanity. The trio came together last summer, and members have performed across the U.S. and in Canada, England, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Russia,Hungary and Spain.
