With members from across North America, the Walden Trio was formed in 2016 at Calgary’s Mount Royal Conservatory. Performing together for the past two years, the trio has an impressive list of accomplishments, having had numerous successes in and out of Calgary. The Trio was selected to compete in the Canadian Music Competition National Finals in June 2017, at which they won first place. Coached in Calgary by Joan Barrett and Krzysztof Jablonski, other artists they have worked with include Angela Chang, Jonathan Crow, Ning Feng, Gwen Hoebig, Joe Johnson, Bill van der Sloot, Ian Swenson and members of the Brentano, Calidore, Escher, Kronos, Pacifica and Rolston String Quartets. As the members of Calgary Pro Musica’s Dick Matthews Young Artists Development Program in the 2017-2018 season, the trio has presented concerts in the residences of United Active Living along with other local communities in Calgary. Equally experienced in educational outreach, the trio has worked to present shows and workshops which they developed, aiming to inspire and educate young audiences about music.
