Trio 180 (faculty ensemble)
Trio 180, artists-in-residence at the Conservatory of Music, is recognized throughout the United States for the high level of musicianship they bring to each performance. This talented ensemble includes celebrated concert violinist Ann Miller, Grammy-nominated cellist Nina Flyer, and award-winning pianist Sonia Leong.
In 2012, Trio 180 celebrated its tenth anniversary season with a gala concert featuring the world premiere of Gothic Sea by Reinaldo Moya, commissioned for the occasion. Recent performances include appearances on Pacific's Resident Artist Series, a concert at the Mondavi Center at UC Davis, and a residency at San Francisco's Old First Concerts, in which the group performed trios by Felix Mendelssohn, Clara Schumann, and Robert Schumann, as well as interactive lectures entitled "Inside the Piano Trio". In addition, noted Bay Area composer Robert Greenberg composed a new work for Trio 180 that was premiered in November 2013.
