Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear the Poinsett Piano Trio in concert! The premier, internationally acclaimed ensemble will perform selections from Dvořák and Ravel on Sunday, January 29, at the Fripp Island Community Centre.
The Trio brings together musicians from German, New Zealand, and American backgrounds. All three members live in Greenville, S.C. and teach at Furman University, a liberal arts college with a strong, performance-oriented music program.
After several years of successfully performing together, in 2008 pianist David Gross, violinist Deirdre Hutton and cellist Christopher Hutton founded the Poinsett Piano Trio, naming their new group in honor of Joel Roberts Poinsett, South Carolina statesman, physician and botanist. Poinsett discovered the Mexican Poinsettia, today associated with Christmas worldwide. While each of these musicians is accomplished in his or her own right, together they have enchanted audiences from New Zealand to the 2011 Spoleto Festival in Charleston.
Sunday, January 29, at 5 p.m. at the Fripp Island Community Center, Fripp Island. The cost is $20 a person; $10 for students. Free Fripp pass at gate. Attendees are invited to join the artists at a catered event after the performance. For details www.islc.net/friendsofmusic/ or call (843) 838-6655.
