Artists and Activities

Cello, piano, and percussion make up this trio of highly skilled musicians who have traveled nationally to every region in this country and internationally to venues in Australia, Russia, Ukraine, the Caribbean, and England. This award-winning ensemble has produced many theatre works and has toured for eleven years. With the addition of an actor, the CORE Ensemble now performs unique works of chamber music theatre that are distinctly original, educational, and entertaining. Their touring pieces incorporate theatre with both traditional and original music appropriate to the story.

The CORE Ensemble’s programs are suitable for adults and college and high school students, with residencies for middle school students.
