The trio is very interested in presenting Stravinsky's "L'Histoire du Soldat" (A Soldier's Tale) with guest clarinetist Jon Manasse, principal clarinetist of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and one of the world's masters of that instrument. The Stravinsky is particularly appealing because it also includes a narrator, (someone from your community, staff, Board of Directors or local personality chosen by the presenting organization) and is a collaboration that is easily accomplished and strongly encouraged. Very little rehearsal is required! On occasion the trio has also included dancers as part of this particular production. Like the narrator the dancers are chosen by the presenting organization. The trio feels that this is a wonderful and imaginative way to connect with your community.
