Eroica Trio to Perform at Shriver Hall

The Grammy-nominated chamber ensemble Eroica Trio will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 2, the final event of the 2003-2004 Shriver Hall Concert Series in Shriver Hall Auditorium on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

One of the first all-female chamber ensembles to reach the top of its field, the Eroica Trio is part of a new generation of artists changing the face of classical music. The trio took its name from Beethoven's passionate Third Symphony. Italian for "heroic," eroica is a word that critics say reflects the ensemble's approach to its art. "It's been decades since this country has produced a chamber music organization with this much passion," according to The San Francisco Examiner. In addition to a demanding concert and recording schedule, the Eroica Trio is committed to music education, giving concerts, master classes and special children's shows at schools and colleges throughout the country.

The trio members have known each other since childhood. Pianist Erika Nickrenz made her concerto debut at New York's Town Hall at 11 and was a featured soloist on the PBS series "Live from Lincoln Center." Violinist Adela PeĄa won first prize at the Washington International competition and has toured extensively as a soloist in the United States, Europe and South America. Cellist Sara Sant'Ambrogio is the recipient of the 1986 bronze medal at the prestigious International Tchaikovsky Cello Competition in Moscow, resulting in concert tours across the United States, Europe, the Middle East and Canada. Additional information about the trio is available online at www.eroicatrio.com/.

Eroica Trio's Shriver Hall Concert Series program will include Beethoven's "Variations on 'Ich bin der Schneider Kakadu,' in G major, Op. 121A," Dmitri Shostakovich's "Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67," and Antonín Dvorák's "Trio in E minor, Op. 90" ("Dumky").

Tickets are $33, $17 for students; 4:30 p.m. student rush, $8. For information, call 410-516-7164. Visit Shriver Hall Concert Series online at http://www.shriverconcerts.org/, where a digital photo of Eroica Trio is available for download.
