Champlain Trio presents 'French Voices' at BMC

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Music Center's Season Guest series continues with the Champlain Trio presenting “French Voices.”

The concert is set for Sunday, April 3, at 4 p.m. at the BMC.

The program features Cécile Chaminade's Trio No. 1 in G minor as well as Lili Boulanger's “D'un soir triste” and “D'un matin de printemps,” all early works for the incomparable female composers.

The program will conclude with the elegant Trio in D Minor by Gabriel Fauré, which was one of the composer's final chamber works.

Performers are Letitia Quante, violin; Emily Taubl, cello; and Hiromi Fukuda, piano. The three artists formed the trio during the COVID-19 pandemic, when concerts, tours, and festivals were being put on hold.

With a shared passion for chamber music and supporting the arts in Vermont, they created a documentary film project called “Empty Stages” with the goal of drawing attention to the many amazing concert venues across the state and to show how COVID-19 had impacted the arts. The documentary aired on Vermont PBS in June 2021.

Since filming the documentary, the Trio continues to expand its active performing schedule as well as form chamber music programs for students across Vermont.

Tickets are $20 general admission and are available through the BMC website at or by calling 802-257-4523.
