WILTON, Conn. -- The dulcet sounds of violin, cello and piano will emanate from the Brubeck Room when the Wilton Library has its opening concert of the Connecticut’s Own series with the Errante/Cho Trio on Sunday, Nov. 1, from 4 to 5 p.m.
No strangers to the Brubeck stage, Richard Errante on violin, Lois Errante on cello and Kyong Hee Cho on piano return to delight the audience.
Their program includes selections from Johannes Brahms and Franz Schubert.
Performing together since 2001, the Errante/Cho Trio is well-known to Connecticut audiences for its committed music-making and creative programming.
Born into a family of musicians, Richard Errante received his first violin lessons from his father. He gave his first public performance at the age of 8, and at 14 was accepted at the Juilliard School of Music. As a scholarship student at the Hartt School of Music and the Manhattan School of Music, he completed his violin studies with Ariana Bronne and the internationally renowned Raphael Bronstein. In addition to solo recitals and concerto appearances, Errante performs in chamber music concerts with his cellist wife.
Lois Errante graduated with honors from Northwestern University and the University of Southern California and continued her studies with Aldo Parisot, Channing Robbins and Irene Sharp. She appeared as soloist at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria, and as chamber musician at the Aspen Music Festival. She has served on the faculties of Vassar College and the State University of New York and has appeared on the Silvermine Guild Chamber Music Series and Connecticut Public Television’s CT Composers series.
Cho began piano studies at the age of 5 and made her first public performance with the Seoul Symphony Orchestra at age 11. After winning major nationwide piano competitions in Korea, she graduated from the Manhattan School of Music with a bachelor's and master's in piano performance. Cho returned to Korea in 1990 to perform a solo recital at the Seoul Art Center. Currently she teaches piano at her studio in Wilton.
