The Peabody Trio

The Peabody Trio

Winning the Naumburg Chamber Music Award in 1989, the Peabody Trio gave its New York debut in 1990 at Alice Tully Hall and has since performed in chamber music series in North America and internationally. They tour frequently in England, Japan and Israel. Their reputation as champions of new music garnered them an invitation to the first Biennale for contemporary music “Tempus Fugit,” in Tel Aviv.

Many festivals including Tanglewood have been home to their summer performances, and they have appeared on radio broadcasts such as Saint Paul Sunday, NPR’s Performance Today, WGBH in Boston and WQXR in New York.

Clarinetist Charles Neidich will join the trio later in the program. He regularly appears as soloist and as collaborator in chamber music programs with leading ensembles in the United States as well as in Europe and Asia.

For its concert at the Howland Center, the trio has chosen to play the Trio in B-flat by Franz Schubert and Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time for violin, cello, piano and clarinet.

The concert will take place on Sunday, March 10, at 4 p.m. at the Howland Cultural Center, 477 Main St. in Beacon, and will be followed by a reception to meet the artists.

Tickets are $30 ($10 for students) and can be reserved by calling 845-297-9243 or on HCMC’s website,, where further information on this and other presentations by the Howland Chamber Music Circle can be found.
