Trio Luminoso–Emily Kleiber, violin, Andrea Wallick, cello, and Joseph Caswell, piano, are all 14 years old. Their coach is Tom Rosenberg, Director of The Chamber Music Academy at The SPCM. They won the SPCO Youth Chamber Music Competition this year, and have been accepted to play at a major chamber music festival in Mantua, Italy this summer. The Trame Sonore, Mantova Chamber Music Festival, is a five-day international chamber music festival that attracts about 300 musicians each summer.
The Friends of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, who coordinate the competition, are grateful to donors who have already contributed a total of $3,000 toward their travel.
Trio Luminoso will perform a fundraising concert for their trip to Italy in The SPCM Fellowship Hall.
