ROCKPORT — On Friday, March 4, at 7 p.m., Bay Chamber Concerts and Music School presents Trio con Brio Copenhagen at the Rockport Opera House, 6 Central St. The trio has performed to great acclaim on Bay Chamber’s summer concert series and returns to Maine to begin an East Coast tour.

Acknowledged as one of the finest piano trios in the world, Trio con Brio Copenhagen was founded at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna in 1999. The trio is now based in Copenhagen and tours extensively worldwide. The two Korean-born sisters, Soo-Kyung Hong (cello) and Soo-Jin Hong (violin), with Soo-Kyung’s husband, Danish pianist Jens Elvekjaer, have established a global reputation for their fresh and contemporary approach to core repertoire. They are regularly heard at the world’s leading venues and concert series — among them, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Wigmore Hall and more.

The program includes excerpts from Prokofiev’s beloved ballet, “Romeo and Juliet,” arranged by the trio, alongside Tchaikovsky’s elegiac “Trio in A Minor.” These romantic works will be familiar to classical music audiences and offer a rare opportunity to hear them performed in Maine in late winter.

Bay Chamber is committed to making live performance accessible to a broad audience by offering a tiered ticketing system. Tickets are $35 for adults age 35 and older, $20 for adults ages 22 to 34 and Pay-What-You-Wish for those age 21 and younger. Properly fitted masks are required for all attendees for the duration of the concert. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit or call 207-236-2823.
