ABOUT THE CHAMPLAIN TRIO
It's been said that out of adversity comes opportunity, and out of the COVID-19 pandemic the Champlain Trio was formed. Violinist Letitia Quante, cellist Emily Taubl and pianist Hiromi Fukuda each call Vermont home and with concerts, tours and festivals being put on hold, the spring of 2020 brought the unique opportunity to come together as an ensemble.
All three musicians earned degrees from The Juilliard School among others and hold positions in the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, Springfield Symphony Orchestra, Amherst College, the University of Vermont and Middlebury College.
With a shared passion for chamber music and supporting the arts in Vermont, the trio created a documentary film project in 2020 entitled “Empty Stages”, with the goal of drawing attention to the many amazing concert venues across the state and to show how COVID-19 has impacted the arts. The documentary aired on Vermont PBS in June of 2021.
In 2022, the trio was awarded a Vermont Arts Council Grant to record the Croatian composer Dora Pejačević’s Piano Trio, Op. 29. The album is now out and can be found on all major streaming platforms.
