Formed six years ago, the Amelia Trio has already established an international reputation. Called "remarkable" by Strings and "exemplary" by Strad, the group almost immediately became one of the world's most sought after ensembles. In its short history the Amelia has been grand prize winner at the Yellow Springs National Competition and recipient of the prestigious ASCAP award for Adventurous Programming. 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. They performed 15 works that spanned the centuries - from a Bach trio sonata to a sneak-peek of John Harbison's new trio written for them. The Amelia enjoys an active touring schedule which has brought them throughout North America as well as France, Italy, the French West Indies, and Panama. Highlights from this past season include performances in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Indianapolis, Maryland, and Alaska.
