Nov 4 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The Verismo Trio will perform on Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Whitney Center for the Arts at Sheridan College.

The trio was founded in 2010 after active performers and recording artists Nicole Riner, who plays the flute, Scott Turpen on the saxophone and Theresa Bogard, who plays the piano, spent a blissful month learning, performing and recording.

Verismo has toured across the United States and South America introducing new sound concepts and new composers to audiences young and old. In the 2012-2013 season, they served as guest artists at 37° Festival de Musica in Goiania, Brazil, as part of their busy touring schedule.

Verismo Trio is dedicated to championing new works for the instrumentation and enjoys collaborating with composers. They have commissioned a dozen new works written by composers across the United States and in Europe, many of which are featured on their debut album, cloudServer. The group has also participated in Vox Novus’ commissioning project, Fifteen Minutes of Fame, based in New York and they hold their own biannual composition contest.

The trio is active as clinicians, dedicated to training young chamber musicians in school residencies and master classes in conjunction with their performances. In this way, they hope to bring a wealth of contemporary composers to a younger audience and encourage collaborations in future generations.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and military members or $5 for students. Tickets may be purchased at the theater box office or online at wyotheater.com.
