High Desert Chamber Music’s landmark 10th anniversary season, presented by Mission Building, continues with the return of the Aviara Trio on March 9. This exciting ensemble has been making an indelible impression on the musical landscape of Southern California. With performance degrees from the Juilliard School, Cleveland Institute of Music, Yale University and Rice University, members of the trio have been Grand Prize Winners and finalists in several prestigious competitions including the Coleman National Chamber Music Competition, Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, and the D’angelo International Piano Competition.The program repertoire includes Mozart Piano Trio in C Major, K.548, Faure Piano Trio in D minor, Op.120, Mendelssohn Piano Trio No.2 in C minor, Op.66.
The Aviara Trio consists of pianist Ines Irawati, who debuted as a concert pianist at age twelve and went on to earn a Masters of Music at Yale University; cellist Erin Breene, who earned music degrees from Rice University and Juilliard School, and has served as principal cellist of outstanding groups such as the San Diego Chamber Orchestra, Opera Pacific Orchestra, and Music Center Dance of Los Angeles; and violinist Robert Schumitzky, who was accepted as a Special Student into the Saint Louis Conservatory of Music at age eleven and later earned a music degree from Juilliard. Schumitzky performs on the 1694 “Ex-Halir” Stradivarius.
“We truly look forward to hosting these musicians again,” states HDCM Executive Director Isabelle Senger. “They have appeared in our concert series several times, and our audience has come to know and love them.”
