Our trio has worked together for over fifteen years. As guests of the People's Repubic of China, they once represented the United States at a United Nations sponsored world concert before an audience of 36,000 in Shanghai, China, and again at the prestigious Beijing Philharmonic Hall. Cole Porter's family led the standing ovation at their performance for the Cole Porter Centennial in conjunction with the U.S. Post Office release of the Cole Porter first-class postage stamp. Their considerable experience performing both classical and popular styles makes them ideal interpreters of the music of Cole Porter.
