Trio Con Brio from Sweden

Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at 7:00 pm in chapel

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 constellation 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. They play concerts all over Sweden, as well as in Germany and America.

They are all educated at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm with a repertoire from classical music to well known hymns via jazz, musicals and film music.
