Hancock

Chamber trio performing Sunday

A performance by the Trio Cleonice will be held at the Hancock Meeting House as part of the New England Conservatory on Norway Pond Series on Sunday at 4 p.m.

The program will feature Tchaikovsky’s Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 50.

These three artists are the Graduate Piano Trio-in-Residence at the New England Conservatory of Music.

Violinist Ari Isaacman-Beck, cellist Gwen Krosnick, and pianist Emely Phelps formed Trio Cleonice in 2008 at the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival. The group enjoys a diverse repertoire that spans early trios of Mozart and Beethoven through romantic masterworks and new pieces, including commissions, for the genre.

For its entire existence, the Trio has placed a strong emphasis on education and on creating an unpretentious and warm musical environment in which all communities can explore and enjoy great chamber music. They have presented family concerts and community outreach throughout Boston. By performing in alternative venues, and through audience engagement and discussion, the trio aspires to make music as accessible, immediate, and joyful as they find it to be.

Trio Cleonice takes its name from Cleonice, the local-centric Mediterranean bistro in Ellsworth, Maine. The trio still maintains close ties with the Downeast Maine community where they first began.

Tickets are $15 and available at the door. Children are admitted for free.
