Centrum’s Port Townsend Chamber Music Festival gets off to an engaging start in 2016…
Centrum welcomes the Amelia Trio to Fort Worden for an afternoon performance at the Joseph F. Wheeler Theater on January 31, 2016. The Festival showcases the brilliant talent of many of the world’s finest classical artists along with the top echelon of most promising young talents in the field today, chosen by its artistic director Lucinda Carver.
Formed in 1999, the Amelia Piano Trio came to the fore after participating in Isaac Stern’s Chamber Music Workshop at Carnegie Hall in 2000. As a result, Mr. Stern became a mentor to the trio and presented the ensemble’s Carnegie Hall debut at Weill Recital Hall. In 2003 the Trio was asked by National Public Radio to be their Young Ensemble in Residence. This exciting week of live concerts and interviews put the Amelia firmly in the foreground of classical music in America, reaching an estimated 1.5 million listeners.
