Guest Artist Recital: The PEN Trio

Event Type: Music
Facility: School of Music (MUS)
Presented By: School of Music
The PEN Trio was established in 2010 by Nora Lewis, Phillip O Paglialonga, and Eric Van der Veer 
Varner to explore and expand the repertoire for the traditional Trio d’Anches. The ensemble has 
appeared throughout the United States and Canada, and has quickly become known for the quality 
and energy of their performances. The group has visited dozens of universities across North America, 
and has performed at numerous academic conferences, chamber music series, and private functions. 
Recent highlights include featured performances at the College Music Society National Conference, 
and the International Double Reed Society Conference, as well as featured performances on both 
Michigan and Alabama Public Radio.

The trio is passionate about the music of our time and has premiered new works by several 
distinguished composers. In 2011 the group premiered  In Threes by composer M. Shawn Hundley 
and has since championed the work in recital. The 2013-4 season included premieres by composers 
William Bradbury, Jenni Brandon, Allen Cohen, and Aleks Sternfeld-Dunn.  The trio has also recently 
partnered with TrevCo Music Publishing to create the PEN Trio Collection which will feature critical 
editions of existing works as well as works written for the PEN Trio.  Visit for more
