The Port Townsend Chamber Music series presented by Centrum is returning for in person performances at the Joseph F. Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden State Park. The Merz Trio will be performing on February 20. From Centrum:

“Hailed as ‘artists in the deepest sense of the word’ and lauded for their ‘stunning virtuosity,’ Merz Trio won the prestigious 2021 Naumberg competition, as well as at the Concert Artists Guild, Fischoff, and Chesapeake Competitions. Their narrative programming style juxtaposes classical standards, new music, and their own arrangements interwoven with introductions and context from the Trio’s members. Enjoy witnessing their rapid rise in the world of chamber music.”
