Famous Ahn Trio to perform at Concord University Thursday, March 19

For Immediate Release: 
Feb 17 2009

Athens, W.Va. – The world famous Ahn Trio will perform at Concord University Thursday, March 19, 2009, at 8 p.m. in the Main Theater of the Alexander Fine Arts Center.

The Ahn Trio is a modern classical band comprised of three sisters – Maria, Lucia and Angella.

Together they are redefining the art and architecture of chamber music by breathing new life into standard piano-trio literature with commissioned works from visionary composers like Kenji Bunch, Maurice Jarre, Nikolai Kapustin and Michael Nyman. In each performance, the Ahn sisters show their ever-evolving passion for music.
The Washington Post described the trio saying, “Their technique was impressive, and they balanced unanimity and individuality in a spirit that is at the heart of chamber music.”
The sisters thrive on breaking down barriers between art forms. They have fused their work with that of dancers, pop singers, DJs, painters, installation artists, photographers, lighting designers, ecologists and even kite makers.
Throughout the years, the trio has performed and led numerous master classes and workshops around the world. Recently the trio performed at the Czech Grammys. In 2003 they were named three of People magazine’s 50 most beautiful people.
Admission for this event is $5 for adults, $4 for senior citizens and $2 for non-Concord students.
Reservations are not needed.
