In January, Kelly Kuo, Anna Reider, and Ashley Sidon performed in Butler’s Duckwald Artist Series as the Kasarah Trio. In the 2019-20 season, the Kasarah Trio performs in cities including Indianapolis and Des Moines.
Formed in 2016, the Kasarah Trio is a collaboration originating from relationships forged between colleagues at the Zenith Chamber Music Festival. The Kasarah Trio gave their debut performance at a benefit concert for Chamber Music Raleigh and have continued making music together ever since. Meaning a personality-type that is outspoken, passionate, kind-hearted, strong-willed, adventurous and lovable, Kasarah is a name that befits each member of the trio, some more strong-willed than others.
Trio members include violinist Anna Reider, cellist Ashley Sandor Sidon, and pianist Kelly Kuo.
