The New Trio has performed throughout the United States to popular and critical acclaim, emerging as one of the preeminent piano trios of its generation. The Trio won the Grand Prizes at the 2008 Fischoff and 2007 Coleman National Chamber Music Competitions; and the First and Audience Choice Prizes at the 2007 Plowman Chamber Music Competition. Named the winner of the Harvard Musical Association’s 2010 Arthur W. Foote Prize, the Trio has performed at Alice Tully Hall and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, Jordan Hall in Boston and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., and it has played at chamber music societies and festivals throughout the country. In 2007, the Trio performed for the memorial concert for famed political historian Arthur Schlesinger at the Cooper Union’s Great Hall in New York City where actress Lauren Bacall, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, the late Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy and former President Bill Clinton spoke; and in 2008, the trio shared the stage with violinist Itzhak Perlman at Pro Musica Hebraica’s inaugural concerts in New York City and Washington, D.C.
