The Portland Piano Trio will play a free concert at OLS on Monday, June 19 at 6pm. The program includes works by Mozart, Mendelssohn and Stephanie Ann Boyd, a Manhattan-based composer still in her twenties who brings “whimsical worlds to life.” Violist Bryan Brash will join the other musicians for part of the evening.
The trio is the resident ensemble of 240 Strings, a Portland-based non-profit that builds community for Portland youth by providing subsidized music lessons, chamber music coachings, and affordable concerts. All three musicians are deeply committed to music education and performance in the greater Portland area, as well as nationally and internationally.
Most recently heard at the Back Cove Contemporary Music Festival in April, the trio loves to perform new music, in addition to more traditional chamber works. “It was such a joy to play new music in Portland, to have the composers there in the audience, and to be a part of that conversation between listeners, performers, and composers,” says trio pianist Anastasia Antonacos. She and her partners, violinist Tracey Jasas-Hardel and cellist Benjamin Noyes, are looking forward to joining forces with Brash to bring free classical music to downtown Portland.
