Classical music lovers should take note of a Kahilu Theatre performance by the Zodiac Trio happening on Sunday, September 30, at 4pm. The group is one of the most recognized ensembles on the world chamber music scene today. They have earned distinctive honors for their work and created a non-traditional synergy by including a wind instrument in the genre.
Zodiac Trio features prize-winning musicians: Riko Higuma on piano, Vanessa Mollard on violin, and Kliment Krylovskiy on clarinet. The Trio was originally formed in 2006 at the Manhattan School of Music in New York. They became the first American group to enter the esteemed Ysaÿe Quartet Chamber Music program at the Paris Superior Conservatory. The Trio was featured in the London-based international MUSO magazine, being praised for “bringing a rare combination of instruments into the spotlight” with “traditional and new music.” During its early years as apprentice of the Ysaÿe Quartet, the Trio garnered numerous awards in the U.S. and European competition circuit. The Zodiac Trio today commands a concert audience that spans three continents.
The internationally acclaimed Zodiac Trio is founder of the Zodiac Music Academy & Festival. The Festival, begun in 2015, invites advanced students and pre-professionals for two weeks of intense training and ample performance opportunities on the famed Côte D’Azur in France.
