Season Guest: Champlain Trio – Transfigured Night
October 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The Champlain Trio presents a “Transfigured Night” Sunday, October 23, at the Brattleboro Music Center.
The 4 p.m. concert will embrace the changing of the seasons with a program that transports the audience from sunlit evenings to the dark of winter. This musical journey will warm souls and excite imaginations as the Trio explores the sublime “Adagio” by Schubert and the incomparable “Ghost” trio by Beethoven and ends with a moonlit walk through the woods with Schoenberg.
The Champlain Trio includes violinist Letitia Quante, pianist Hiromi Fukuda, and cellist Emily Taubl. All three musicians earned degrees from The Juilliard School among others and hold positions in the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, Springfield Symphony Orchestra, Amherst College, and the University of Vermont. They founded the Champlain Trio during the COVID shutdown as a result of their shared passion for chamber music and support of the arts in Vermont.
The Trio’s experience resulted in a documentary film project called “Empty Stages” with the goal of drawing attention to the many amazing concert venues across the state and to show how COVID-19 had impacted the arts. The documentary aired on Vermont PBS in June of 2021.
Since filming the documentary, the trio has continued to expand their active performing schedule in addition to forming chamber music programs for students across Vermont.
