Vox Cor Trio is a unique ensemble comprised of piano, trumpet, and trombone that explores classical vocal music, aiming to share emotional journeys and stories without lyrics. Originally founded by Japanese pianist Mika Komuro in 2022 for her project “Without A Word,” it had its debut in Cincinnati that same year.

Tong & Sheppard – April 13, 2024
Violinist Jessica Tong and pianist Michael Sheppard first met at the Peabody Conservatory, where they studied with legendary violinist Pamela Frank and pianist Leon Fleisher respectively. After their first performance of Mozart Violin Sonatas more than 10 years ago, they discovered they share a very rare singular vision in their approaches to music-making. They have continued to collaborate ever since that first performance, presenting inventive and adventurous programs that integrate both well-loved and lesser-known masterpieces for violin and piano.
