Corona virus update

The Zenith Chamber Music Festival is committed to following the recommended safety practices regarding the corona virus.  We recognize that the situation changes on a daily basis and we plan to have a decision regarding the June 2020 season by April 15th.  We continue to hope for good health and will keep our patrons and supporters updated. 

Between Seasons, Zenith Musicians Collaborate

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.
