With glass float-hunting season in full swing on the Oregon Coast, we at TODAY Towers can’t recommend following the advice of our colleagues at The Boston Globe when it comes to the Boston Trio’s appearance in Neskowin this Sunday, Nov. 4.
The Globe greeted the acclaimed trio’s debut with the advice: “Whenever this trio plays, drop everything and go hear them.”
We at the TODAY recommend gently placing your glass float (or baby, or kitten, or other fragile treasure) in a safe place before racing to Camp Winema for this latest offering from the Neskowin Chamber Music series.
The Boston Trio has appeared to critical acclaim and audience pleasure all over the United States and Europe, since it founding in 1997.
A native of Bucharest, Romania, Irina Muresanu began receiving top prizes in international violin competitions early in her career. She has appeared as a soloist with orchestras in Geneva, Montreal, Pretoria and Brussels, along with symphony orchestras in Boston, Syracuse and Miami. She received an Artist Diploma and a Doctor of Musical Arts from the New England Conservatory and now teaches at the Boston Conservatory.
Heng-Jin Park is a founding member of the Boston Trio who started playing piano at the age of five and made her solo debut with the Boston Pops at the age of 15. Her career has taken her all over the world with solo performances in Europe and Canada, along with appearances in the US at the Library of Congress, Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. A native of Korea who grew up in Boston, she received her Bachelor and Master Degrees from the New England Conservatory. She is artistic director of the Killington Music Festival in Killington, Vermont.
The trio’s newest member, Jonah Ellsworth, began his cello studies at the age of five and finished his academic training at the New England Conservatory and the Curtis Institute of Music. He achieved success early in his career as a soloist with the Boston Symphony, Akron Symphony, Boston Philharmonic and the New Bedford Symphony. He was selected as a fellow of the 2016 Piatigorsky International Cello Festival and appeared at the Marlboro Music Festival for several years.
The trio has served as ensemble-in-residence at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in Cambridge, Massachusetts from 1997 to 2004. They are now ensemble-in-residence at the New England Conservatory.
Sunday’s concert will start at 3 pm in the chapel at Camp Winema, three miles north of Neskowin, just off Highway 101. Tickets, $25, are available on the door.
