Telos Trio presented a wonderful concert of music and poetry at Otterbein University.  Though the repertoire was unusual, the presentation made both music and text come alive with the excitement of discovering connections.  Especially outstanding was "Portraits of Langston" by American composer Valerie Coleman.

Two days later, Telos Trio presented a completely different and utterly captivating program at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, adjoining the OSU campus.  With easy virtuosity, the Trio again illuminated poetry with the theme of "Gathering Light," playing music by Debussy, del Aguila and others, somehow combining charm with ferocious energy.

It was a pleasure to work with the Trio in producing both concerts and a wonderful master class for Otterbein students, and to collaborate with the St. Stephen's choir in an anthem performed during our Sunday worship service.

"I heard Telos Trio last night and all I can say is 'Wow!'  Don't miss them if you have the opportunity to attend.  Amazing musicianship, and delightful combination of music and poetry."

The Telos Trio offered our students an engaging and informative performance masterclass, followed by an evening performance. The inventive concert was a delightful fusion of prose and poetry with chamber music. The trio's musicianship and ensemble skills were exceptional throughout the evening. They truly have the ability to at once play as masterful soloists and as chamber artists.
