Trio Accord is developing a reputation as one of Canada’s premier chamber ensembles. Based in Vancouver, BC, Mary Sokol Brown (violin), Andrew Brown (viola), and Ariel Barnes (cello) are ardent and enthusiastic proponents of chamber music. As performers, they offer unique insights about the music they play, enriching the concert experience for their listeners. As educators, Trio Accord’s members conduct chamber music workshops in BC’s scenic wine region and on the mystic Gulf Islands. They have been featured guest artists teaching and performing at the Northern Lights Music Festival in Ajijic, Mexico.
Trio Accord takes particular delight in presenting concerts in churches, private homes and other intimate settings suited to the spirit of chamber music. These concerts have been described as “enchanting”, “exhilarating”, and “extremely moving.”
