Trio Kisosen to open Saugerties Pro Musica season
The first in-person concert of Saugerties Pro Musica’s 26th season will feature Trio Kisosen on Sunday, September 19 at 3 p.m. at the Saugerties United Methodist Church. It will be recorded and shown online during the weeks afterward. All CDC guidelines will be followed in the live performance at the church.
Trio Kisosen is named after the Abenaki Eagle Spirit who creates day and night by the opening and closing of his wings, just as music evokes changing contrasts of light and shadow. Together, the Trio offers years of internationally recognized performances. All Yale School of Music graduates, the Trio shares an interest in exploring new music as well as standard trio repertoire and a love of teaching students of all ages.
Cellist An-Lin Bardin and pianist Naomi Niskala, the founding members of Trio Kisosen, formed the group in 2017, with violinist Matheus Sardinha Garcia Souza joining in 2018. Together they will present a program of Schubert’s Notturno D 897 in E-flat Major, Mozart’s Piano Trio K. 564 in G Major, Ernst Bloch’s 3 Nocturnes and Brahms’ Piano Trio op 8 in B Major.
The Church is located at 67 Washington Avenue at the corner of Post Street in Saugerties.
The free concert will be rebroadcast at a later date on the Saugerties Pro Musica YouTube Channel and on Saugerties Lighthouse TV. For additional information, visit saugertiespromusica.org.
