The Cerulean Trio is passionate about delivering artistic and compelling performances to diverse audiences. The trio brings together the unique combination of a single woodwind and string instrument with piano, resulting in a rich amalgamation of color, textural, and lyrical possibilities. In addition to performing the standard literature for clarinet, viola, and piano, the trio also expands its repertoire by incorporating its own transcriptions and newly commissioned works.
The trio has been selected as one of five finalists in the prestigious Chesapeake Chamber Music Competition and will compete in Maryland for the finals in April 2016. Other highlights of their 2015-2016 season include performances on 91.5 WFSQ-FM radio and at the Monticello Opera House, an appearance on ABC 27 television, collaborations with the Southern Shakespeare Festival, educational outreach in schools, and performances at universities throughout the southeast.
Its members have performed all over the world in Poland, Italy, Austria, Greece, China, Singapore, Germany, and France. Additionally, all members maintain active orchestral careers, performing with ensembles such as the Sarasota Orchestra, the Florida Orchestra, Sinfonia Gulf-Coast, and the Orlando Philharmonic. Formed with students from Florida State University, the Cerulean Trio takes its name from the Latin “caerulum” which stands for heavens and sky. They are usually seen reflecting the blues of sky in their performance attire.
