A Whidbey Island-based piano trio plays music from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries in a free concert this Sunday at Tahoma Unitarian Universalist Church. Called the Time Traveling Trio, musicians Gloria Ferry-Brennan (violin), James Hinkley (cello) and Eileen Soskin (piano) will play music by Mendelssohn, Fauré, Piazzolla and Frank Bridge at 3 p.m. Feb. 17.
Ferry-Brennan, just 16, has already won awards like the Jack Kent Cook scholarship and Music Teachers National Association’s Junior String Competition. Michigan native Hinkley has played principal cello for the Glacier Symphony and Ohio Light Opera, written music for chamber, orchestra, choral and MTV, and also performs with gypsy-jazz ensemble Billet-Deux. Soskin is a former academic from the Peabody Conservatory, Univeristy of Iowa, UCB, San Francisco State and John Hopkins University.
The program includes piano trios by Mendelssohn, Fauré and Bridge, plus Piazzolla’s “Spring” from his “Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.”
