Trio con Brio to perform
Trio con Brio will be sharing special music at the 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Sunday services at First Lutheran Church, Brainerd.
It all began in 2001, when Jan Holmgren got the idea of putting together a trio consisting of one flute, one oboe and a piano. They should play music that would be arranged only for this constallation and the music genre should be very wide and not connected to a specific type of music. Trio con Brio was born and today the trio consists of Carina Cederwall, flute; Jan Holmgren, oboe/English horn; and Stig Andersson, piano/arrangements.
