Claremont Trio headlines Texas State’s International Concert Series


The well-travelled Claremont Trio will perform at Texas State University on Tuesday, Feb. 23 as part of the School of Music’s International Concert Series.

The evening of classical music will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Texas State Performing Arts Center’s recital hall, 405 Moon Street in downtown San Marcos.

The trio was formed in 1999 at the Juilliard School. Based in New York City near its Claremont Avenue namesake, the group became the first winner of the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award and the only piano trio ever to win the Young Concert Artists International Auditions.

Twin sisters — violinist Emily Bruskin and cellist Julia Bruskin — with pianist Andrea Lam have performed at the Library of Congress, the San Miguel International Festival, Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

The group’s discography also includes trios by Ravel, Mendelssohn, Shostakovich, Arensky, Kirchner, Zwilich, Paul Schoenfield, Mason Bates and a collaborative disc with clarinetist Jonathan Cohler, which received a Critic’s Choice award from BBC Magazine.

The performance is sponsored by the university’s School of Music and arts patron Patrick W. Price. Individual tickets start at $15 for adults and $8 for students, senior and military. Tickets can be purchased at the box office or online at the university’s box office website here.
