JONESBORO – Neave Trio will perform in Arkansas State University's 2018-19 Lecture-Concert Series, Wednesday, April 3.

Since forming in 2010, Neave Trio has earned enormous praise for its engaging, cutting-edge performances.

The chamber ensemble's concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Riceland Hall of Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Dr.  Admission is free.

Neave has performed at many esteemed concert series and at festivals worldwide, including Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Rockport Chamber Music Festival, Norfolk and Norwich Chamber Music Series, and the Samoylov and Rimsky Korsakow Museums' Chamber Music Series in St. Petersburg.

The trio has also appeared frequently as soloists for Beethoven's Triple Concerto with orchestras across the country and held residency positions at Brown University, ArtsAhimsa Chamber Music Festival, San Diego State University as the first ever Fisch/Axelrod Trio‑in‑Residence, and the Banff Centre (Canada), among many other institutions.

In the fall of 2017, the Trio joined the faculty of the Longy School of Music of Bard College as Alumni Artists, Faculty Ensemble-in-Residence.  The Boston Musical Intelligencer included Neave in its “Best of 2014” and “Best of 2016” roundups, noting the group members' communication, variety of touch, and expressive sensibility.

This concert is presented with additional funding support from College of Liberal Arts and Communication, Department of Music, and A-State Music Outreach Program.

The Lecture-Concert Series serves Arkansas State and the surrounding communities by bringing notable guest speakers and performers of diverse backgrounds and wide appeal to the campus, according to Dr. Tim Crist, chair of the Lecture-Concert Series.
