Great News from AYPO's Chamber Ensemble Program!

Thursday, April 30, 2015

Washington Performing Arts and Levine presented the second annual Misbin Family Memorial Chamber Music Competition. The competition was judged by a panel chosen by Washington Performing Arts and Levine Music from members of the greater Washington music community.

The Trifold Trio, comprised of Maxence Mouries, Forrest Johnston and Ruiran Xun, received the Misbin Family Memorial Award for the best performance with piano as well as a shared 2nd place. This is the more notable because they competed in the senior division.

The trio has been coached through the Chamber Ensemble program with The Ensemble da Camera of Washington - Ricardo Cyncynates, Claire Eichhorn and Anna Balakerskaia. They will perform at the recital on May 17 at The Lyceum in a program to include the entire Ewazen Trio, as well as performing at the Millennium Stage on Monday, May 18, at 6pm.

Congratulations to our talented and dedicated young artists!

This competition is made possible by the generous support of Dr. Robert Misbin.
