Manhattan Piano Trio live at St. Luke’s in Live Oak Jan. 13

Live Oak —

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church (1391 SW 11th Street, Live Oak) is once again hosting the Manhattan Piano Trio for a musical event on Monday, Jan. 13, at 7 p.m. We invite the public to join us for this unusual and delightful presentation of chamber music. We look forward to the community joining us. Refreshments will be served after the concert.

Hailed by critics as “a grand departure from the usual” (News Herald), the Manhattan Piano Trio has quickly become one of the most creative, exciting, and dynamic young ensembles in the United States. With more than 500 performances since its inception in 2004, MPT is one of the most active groups in the classical music scene, welcomed by enthusiastic audiences in over 35 American states, Italy, South Africa and Australia. The Washington Post described the Trio as “impressive” and “outstanding,” while the Sarasota Herald Tribune said, “one seldom is privileged to enjoy music of such a wide range of styles performed with self-effacing skill and relaxed assurance.”

The Trio comprises Milana Strezeva (Piano), Wayne Lee (Violin) and Dmitry Kouzov (Cello); all award winning soloists in their own right. Since its inception in 2004, the Trio has captured grand prizes at the Plowman Competition and at the Yellow Springs Competition; runner-up at the Chesapeake Competition; and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Listeners’ Choice Award in Melbourne.

Strongly committed to educating new generations of musicians and music lovers, the MPT is adept at weaving informative talks into its performances, thereby imparting greater musical insight and emotional clarity to its audiences. As part of the community rebuilding effort in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, they were one of the first musical groups to perform in the city and were honored to give a benefit concert at the University of New Orleans.
