The Portland Piano Trio will perform a FREE live community concert at the Portland Conservatory on October 24 at 4pm. The program will include the wildly fun and popular Cafe Music by Paul Schoenfield.
The Portland Piano Trio, recognized as “among the city’s must-hear groups” by critic Allan Kozinn, has played public performances and house concerts throughout Maine and New England, including in Portland, Portsmouth, Camden, Freeport, and Peaks Island. Musicians Tracey Jasas-Hardel (violin), Wayne Smith (cello), and Anastasia Antonacos (piano) are committed to bringing “energy, understanding, technique, insight, great beauty, humor, impressive ensemble, and shared musical values” to the music they play. Their varied programs feature traditional repertoire alongside newer works.
The trio, which serves as the resident ensemble of 240 Strings, was chosen for week-long residencies in 2017 & 2018 at the prestigious Avaloch Farm Institute in New Hampshire.
240 Strings, founded in 2016, cultivates young minds and hearts by providing free classical music education, while building community along the way. To learn more, please visit www.240strings.org or call 207-221-2613.
