Hailed as "exacting and exciting musicians" by the Los Angeles Times, the three sisters of the Ahn Trio (Lucia on the piano, Angella on the violin and Maria on the cello) have earned a distinguished reputation for embracing twenty-first-century classical music with their unique style and innovative collaborations.
The Ahn sisters were born in Seoul, Korea, and educated at the Juilliard School in New York City. Reflecting the two cultures in which they grew up, the Trio brings a new energy and excitement to the chamber music world. Many luminary composers such as Michael Nyman, Maurice Jarre and Pat Metheny have written works for them, and in 2011 President Obama invited them to perform at the White House for a State Dinner honoring South Korea.
In over ten years of touring, the Trio has performed in all fifty states and in over thirty countries, and has recorded six albums.
