The Fair Trade Trio is a professional string trio that regularly performs around New York City and tours North America. The trio specializes in creating accessible performances for all audiences and has a mission to champion the works of living female composers alongside the standard chamber music canon. Highlights of their 2016/17 season include performances in Manhattan including their first appearance in the music series Music at Our Saviour’s Atonement, the world premiere of their newly commissioned piece by Canadian composer Emily Doolittle and a tour of the Pacific northwest in the summer of 2017.
The Fair Trade Trio is comprised of the three founding members and regular core musicians of the Fair Trade Chamber Music Society. While we all attended the Manhattan School of Music, only Ashley and Jeanette met while completing their Master’s Degrees at the Manhattan School of Music. Jeanette and Kallie met while performing at the Castleton Festival, and Kallie and Ashley met while performing in the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas. Over the past five years, we have developed our relationships as colleagues and friends. We genuinely enjoy working together and look forward to many more performances as a trio and in concerts with our favorite colleagues!
