The Connecticut Trio
The Connecticut Trio is composed of pianist Linda Laurent, violinist Gerard Rosa, and cellist Julie Ribchinsky, who are all professors at Central Connecticut State University. This group will be celebrating its 20th anniversary, as well as twenty years of performance at the Museum, which includes the inaugural concert for the opening of the Museum's new facility in 2006. The ensemble received acclaim both nationally and locally and was lauded as "one of the foremost treasures in Hartford’s classical music scene" (Matthew Erikson, Hartford Courant).

The program will begin with a lovely Haydn trio. Violinist Karin Fagerburg, and violist Michael Wheeler will then join the ensemble in a performance of the great Schumann Piano Quintet.

The concert and reception following are additionally sponsored by grants from the Sloper Musical Fund and CCSU.
