Description


Trilogy are ‘original and innovative young musicians with a great deal to offer the world.’ – Andrew Leeson


Trilogy’s debut concert in North Yorkshire, supported by the Ryedale Festival, brought excitement and vibrancy to the Wolds. With fresh and imaginative ideas, their repertoire contains many original arrangements, new compositions and the classic trio works. In collaboration with their performance, of Submerged by Miguel Aguila, a video was created to portray the beauty and darkness of the sea alongside the vast amount of plastic waste being polluted into the world’s tropical paradises. For every concert, Trilogy want to create a memorable and exhilarating experience for the audience.

‘I was privileged to attend this truly inspirational event, this was the first time I had heard Trilogy perform and they were just magnificent, masters of their instrument and combined with a strong and rhythmic accent. A night I will never forget.’

Trilogy were formed in January 2019. Amy-Jayne and Bethan had previously played in a trio whilst at the Royal College of Music. During their years at the RCM they received distinction for all performances. Meanwhile, this year they have collaborated with Henrietta who graduated from the Guildhall School of Music. As individuals they perform with the London Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic and Philharmonia Orchestra.

As professional award-winning musicians, they have the vision and ambition to innovatively push the boundaries and adapt the programme individual to their audience.



Programme

On 11th October Trilogy will be performing works such as:

John Buckley, Down by the Sally Gardens

Vivaldi 'Four Seasons'

Mathias, Zodiac Trio

Hilary Tann, From the Song of the Amergin

Trilogy want to highlight and portray the beautiful Yorkshire countryside through a variation of contrasting works with visual elements.

Their performance is part of a classical music concert series, at The Wesley Centre, following Julian Lloyd Webber and Lesley Garrett.
