The “Pleasure of Your Company” music series, sponsored by Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library, welcomes back the Orvieto Piano Trio on Sunday, Feb. 20, at 2:30 p.m., performing works by Felix Mendelssohn, Felix Grieg and Rachel Grimes.

Ensemble members include violinist Lauren Basney, cellist Daniel Frankhuizen and pianist Dr. Byron Chow. 

Trio members first met in 2009 at the Orvieto Musica chamber music festival in the Italian town of the same name.

Basney, winner of a number of competitions, holds degrees from Julliard, Yale and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has performed throughout Europe and North America as well as in Japan, Israel and Australia, including six appearances at Carnegie Hall.

Frankhuizen has performed throughout the United States and abroad as a soloist, chamber musician and in several pop groups. He completed his undergraduate studies at Ithaca College and his Master’s in Music Performance at the Purchase College Music Conservatory.

Chow, a pediatrician, is also an avid pianist, violist and composer. He completed his undergraduate studies at Yale and received his MD from NYU. He recently completed a sabbatical in which he was able to further his piano studies in Vienna, Austria.

Come enjoy chamber music at its best in the intimate setting of the Scripps Miramar Ranch Library Center. There is no charge for the concert, although donations are appreciated.
