BELLA Piano Trio was founded in 2009 and has since become one of San Francisco’s most exciting emerging ensembles. The members have been trained at some of the world's leading conservatories and institutions, including Juilliard, Harvard, Rice and the New England and San Francisco Conservatories. They have worked with some of SF’s greatest performing artists and ensembles, including members of the St. Lawrence and Alexander String Quartets and pianist Stephen Prutsman with the Nobilis Trio. They have also worked extensively with pianist Gilbert Kalish, violinist Mark Steinberg of the Brentano String Quartet, Don and Vivian Weilerstein, and Joel Krosnick of the Juilliard String Quartet as residents of the internationally renowned Banff Chamber Music Program this past June under the directorship of Barry Shiffman. BELLA's MISSION is to engage and inspire diverse audiences with the transformational power of music as a language for bridging gaps and building relationships via guided performances of the highest standards. They strive towards this mission from multiple approaches: lectures and performances in traditional and nontraditional concert venues, chamber music salons, outreach community events and collaborations, and interactive learning through their website, links and social platforms. In addition to their public performances, they maintain a Salon Series hosted by private patrons, as well as performances with community partners such as the Harvard Club of SF, the SF Conservatory of Music, and neighborhood artists and galleries. All three artists share a deep sensibility to the value and potential beauty of living artfully and the power of bringing inspirational music to the lives of others. It is this thread that ties them to their music, their audiences, and each other. BELLA is a proud Affiliate of the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music (SFFCM), a non-profit organization promoting chamber music of all genres in the Bay Area.
