WACO, Texas (Oct. 30, 2015) – Baylor University’s School of Music will welcome the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio as part of its Distinguished Artist Series at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 2, in Roxy Grove Hall.

The group is a piano trio composed of pianist Joseph Kalichstein, violinist Jaime Laredo and cellist Sharon Robinson.

“The Distinguished Artist Series strives to present well-respected classical musicians and artists to Central Texas,” said Kathy Johnson, artist relations director and assistant to the dean of the School of Music. “This particular trio has an outstanding reputation that has endured throughout the years.”

The trio made their debut at the White House for President Jimmy Carter’s inauguration in 1977. It is one of the only long-lived ensembles with all of its original members. The group balances the careers of three internationally-acclaimed soloists while making annual appearances at many of the world’s major concert halls, commissioning new works and maintaining an active recording agenda.

“It is a privilege to have musicians of this caliber perform in Central Texas,” Johnson said. “It is becoming increasingly rare for the public to hear classical music performed live, but this event is so accessible and affordable that the public should take advantage of it.”

The concert will consist of works by Beethoven, Shostakovich and Brahms.

This event is open to the public. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for students, senior citizens and Baylor faculty and staff. They may be purchased here or at the School of Music Box Office in the Glennis McCrary Music Building.

Roxy Grove Hall is located inside Waco Hall at 624 Speight Ave. Glennis McCrary Music Building is located at 110 Baylor Ave.
