Dianna Anderson said the group includes piano, violin and cello. They have been playing together as a group since 2004 and perform one concert a semester at MSU. They also are the resident faculty at Dakota Chamber Music and frequently perform in schools.
The music they are performing at Sunday's concert includes a trio by Joseph Haydn, and a trio by early 20th century Spanish composer Joaquin Turina. They will also play a piece called "The Bright Moon and Me" by David Leskowitz, the composition chair at the University of California at Los Angeles. Leskowitz knew Rumney in college and sent the piece to the group. It will be performed for the first time in Sunday's concert.
"It's always exciting to play new music and to present it so people can hear something they've never heard before," said Dianna Anderson.
