The six instruments pay homage to the celebrated American composer, evoking all the brilliance and intensity of a symphonic orchestra. Repertoire includes An American in Paris, 3 Preludes for Solo Piano, Summertime, I’ve Got Rhythm and of course, Rhapsody in Blue.

It’s been 10 years since this dynamic group of highly accomplished musicians played in Creston but we haven’t forgotten them and are delighted to announce that they are still going strong. Classically trained, this piano-violin-cello threesome was described by Stuart McLean as “The Court Jesters of the classical music world”. If there was any doubt that classical music can be great fun, Joe Trio will put it to rest.
