Performance by Claremont Trio
Featuring Emily Bruskin Yarbrough ’92 and Julia Bruskin Wunsch ’92
Wednesday, March 30, 2022, at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom
The finale of the March Madness Alumni Giving Challenge ended on a high and sweet note with a performance by the talented Claremont Trio featuring alumna Emily Bruskin Yarbrough ’92, alumna Julia Bruskin Wunsch ’92, and Andrea Lam.
The Claremont Trio is lauded as one of America’s finest young chamber groups (Strad Magazine) and is sought after for its thrillingly virtuosic and richly communicative performances. First winners of the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award and the only piano trio ever to win the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, the Claremonts tour extensively, including concerts at the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Museum, and Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
Bridge Records released the Claremont Trio’s recording of the Beethoven “Triple” Concerto with the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra and Beethoven’s Trio Op. 1 No. 1 to rave reviews. Their most recent album, Queen of Hearts, was released in February and includes six piano trios that were all specially commissioned for the Claremonts.
