Trio 826 was created in 2011 by three friends to explore ideas for innovation in the performance of classical music. The members of the trio have vast experience as orchestral and chamber musicians, soloists, and educators. The mission of Trio 826 is to be an agent of change in the classical arena. They hope to be curious about theiraudience, take on risk in new presentations, and bring classical music to life. They perform new and standard repertoire works in a variety of venues, from formal concerts to shows in intimate, informal, and unusual settings. They are committed to expanding the repertoire for string trio through the commission and performance of new works. For 2012, the trio commissioned a work entitled "Soneando" by UNI Faculty Composer Robert Washut, and they look forward to premiering more such new and exciting works in future seasons. The ensemble loves to collaborate with institutions, other musicians and artists of all disciplines.
