She has sung more than twenty operatic roles with Glimmerglass Opera, Florida Grand Opera, Portland Opera, Tacoma Opera, and other companies.
David Saffert is a classically trained pianist from Wisconsin. He has been seen on stage in sketch comedy, improv, solo piano concerts, and in his very own music & comedy variety shows. David has worked as a pianist with such organizations as the Guthrie Theater (MN), Oregon Ballet Theatre, Portland Opera, Oregon Symphony, and the Interlochen Arts Camp.
Hugely acclaimed German Piano Trio
Performed Sunday, November 3, 2019
The Detroit Press proclaimed: "Three voices – one sound: The kind of pitch-perfect unanimity of phrasing, tone, feeling and interpretation that distinguishes the finest chamber ensembles."
Founded in 2003 by violinist Annette von Hehn, cellist Stefan Heinemeyer and pianist Thomas Hoppe, the ATOS TRIO strives to convey the spirit of string quartet playing to the piano trio realm. Never shying from extremes, the ensemble aims to push limits when it comes to sound and dynamics and is known for its honesty of interpretation. The 'Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award' recognized the achievement of the ATOS TRIO and awarded this distinction to the trio in 2007. It offers the winners twenty important US concerts including a debut concert at New York's Carnegie Hall and performances in Chicago, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Detroit, Kansas City and Tucson.
