The Claremont Trio, widely regarded as the premier piano trio of its generation, comes to Clarksville on Oct. 14 as part of the Clarksville Community Concert Association 2011-12 series. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at Austin Peay State University’s Music/Mass Communication Building’s Concert Hall.
The group is the only piano trio ever to win the Young Concert Artists International Auditions. Consistently lauded for its “aesthetic maturity, interpretive depth, and exuberance” and hailed by BBC as “splendidly enjoyable,” the Claremont Trio offers a unique concert experience for Clarksville audiences.
“Their presence on campus serves as a vital reminder to our music majors that as musicians it is our privilege to continue to grow as professional performers and educators,” Dr. Emily Hanna Crane, professor of violin at Austin Peay State University, said. “The members of the Claremont Trio not only perform at the highest artistic level, but they are active in community and educational outreach, areas in which our students will be involved in the future.”
The event is co-sponsored by the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts.
