    Lincoln Trio

    Formed in 2003, the Lincoln Trio takes its name from their home, the heartland of the United States, the land of Lincoln. The trio has been praised for its polished presentations of well-known chamber works and its ability to forge new paths with contemporary repertoire.

    The Lincoln Trio has performed throughout the United States, including appearances at Carnegie’s Weil Hall, Ravinia Festival, Poisson Rouge, LACMA, Lane Concert Series, University of Chicago, Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series, Music in the Loft, and in Springfield, Illinois, where the trio was chosen to celebrate the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial celebration with President Barack Obama. Internationally the trio has performed in Germany, Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam and most recently a 5 city tour of Colombia.

    Staunch proponents of music education, the Lincoln Trio has had residencies at San Francisco State University, University of Wisconsin Madison, and SUNY Fredonia. They are currently ensemble-in-residence at the Merit School of Music.

    Their recording of ‘Annelies’ was nominated for a 2014 Grammy Award, and their most recent CD ‘Trios from our Homelands’ was nominated for a 2017 Grammy Award in the Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance Category. 

    Tickets range from $20 – $30 based on seating assignment. UTRF members receive $5 off their tickets, limited student seating is $10. More information and online registration are available at unitychambermusicseries.org
