The Gryphon Trio Classical music trio to perform
Sunday afternoon concert on July 7
The award-winning Canadian classical music trio—The Gryphon Trio—will perform as part of a Horizons Summer Concert Series at the NAU Kitt Recital Hall at 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 7, 2019.
The Gryphon Trio “In Pursuit of Love” concert pairs Beethoven and Ravel repertoire with a recently commissioned work by Sri Lanka-born composer Dinuk Wijeratne.
Trio members Annalee Patipatanakoon (violin), Roman Borys (cello) and Jamie Parker (piano) are known for collaborating on projects that push the boundaries of classical music. They tour regularly throughout North America and Europe and enjoy longstanding relationships with organizations such as Music Toronto, Chamber Music Society of Detroit and Ottawa Chamberfest.
The Gryphon Trio has commissioned more than 85 new works and its recording catalogue includes more than 23 releases on music labels. In addition to its three 2019 Juno Awards, including one for Classical Album of the Year, the Trio received the 2013 Walter Carsen Prize for Excellence in the Performing Arts from the Canada Council for the Arts.
