The Koinonia Trio was formed in Ann Arbor, Michigan in September 2015. Their mission is closely related to their trio name, “Koinonia,” a transliterated form of a Greek word, which means “a gift jointly contributed.’ Since its formation, the trio has won 1st Prizes at the American Prize and the Briggs Chamber Music, and was awarded the University of Michigan Performing Arts EXCELerator Grant Fellowship as well as a $10,000 grant from the Binkow Endowment for Chamber Music. The Koinonia has performed in New York, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Alaska and 5 cities in Europe as a part of a tour in Austria, Germany and Italy. The trio has been invited by many music festivals including the Innsbrook Institute, the Anchorage Chamber Music Festival, and the Maui Classical Music Festival, and has given outreach concerts and workshops at schools and retirement homes. Upcoming projects include recording iconic piano trios by University of Michigan composers in 2019.
