Portland Piano Trio

The Portland Piano Trio is the resident trio of 240 Strings.  The members of the PPT strive to perform classical music concerts for everyone, regardless of resources.

Since its critically-acclaimed Portland, Maine debut in 2016, the Portland Piano Trio’s  “enlivening tautness and precision,” “impressive ensemble and shared musical values” have entertained and inspired audiences throughout New England.  Noted for “…sounding like a group that has played together for 10 years,” they have appeared on numerous chamber music series, including Back Bay Contemporary Music Festival, First Fridays at First Parish, and Portsmouth Atheneum, among others. The trio is serving as the first musicians-in-residence of 240 Strings, a Portland, Maine-based nonprofit dedicated to providing private music lessons to economically-challenged children in Portland, and providing affordable community concerts.  Last summer, the trio was awarded a residency at the prestigious Avaloch Music Institute in Boscowen, New Hamshire,  for a week of intense rehearsing and sharing with other nationally recognized chamber groups. The group has a passion for playing house concerts-the venue where chamber music was meant to by played-and has garnered a strong following in the Portland area.

The Portland Piano Trio unquestionably has the goods.

...a performance that had everything: energy, understanding, technique, insight, great beauty, humor, impressive ensemble and shared musical values—all in service of a fascinating and varied program.
— Bill Wieting, chairman, Portsmouth Athenaeum Performance Committee
