A newly-formed piano trio, Trio Kisosen, comes to the Sordoni Theater of the VIA Public Media Studios for a Simply Grand Concert Sunday December 2, at 3:00pm.

Trio Kisosen is named after the Abenaki solar deity, an 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 in North America, Western and Eastern Europe, South America, and Asia, performing in renowned venues such as Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall, Philharmonie Kammermusiksaal of Berlin, and les Invalides, Paris. 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.
