Helios Piano Trio, a dynamic ensemble composed of award-winning artist faculty from the University of Wyoming, will perform its debut recital March 1 in New York City’s Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall.
The program, presented by UW, will feature music by Elena Kats-Chernin, Felix Mendelssohn and Maurice Ravel.
Helios members are John Fadial, violin; Beth Vanderborgh, cello; and Chi-Chen Wu, piano, whose rich and diverse backgrounds come together to produce probing and passionate interpretations of the great piano trio repertoire and have attracted international acclaim.
In recent years, Helios Piano Trio has performed and taught across the United States, including concerts and workshops in Denver, Colo.; Omaha, Neb.; Greensboro, N.C.; and Boston, Mass., as well as internationally in France, Italy and China. The Helios Trio was the single U.S. representative ensemble invited to perform at the International Debussy Centennial Conference in Oviedo, Spain, in 2018.
At home in Wyoming, Wu, Fadial and Vanderborgh are dedicated to education and building audiences for the future. They are highly involved in musical outreach, bringing great music to rural areas and into schools throughout Wyoming.
