Poinsett Piano Trio coming to Gloucester on Feb. 10
The Poinsett Piano Trio will perform a 5 p.m. concert at the Abingdon Episcopal Church on Sunday, Feb. 10.
The show is free.
According to an announcement from the church, "After having performed together with great success for several years in other chamber combinations, David Gross, Deirdre Hutton and Christopher Hutton founded the Poinsett Piano Trio in 2008. All three members of the trio live in Greenville, S.C., and teach at Furman University, an institution with a strongly performance-based music program. They made their first international tour to New Zealand in 2010 and plan a return visit in 2013. Their 2011-12 season included playing in Idaho, the Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States, as well as a summer tour in Germany. The ensemble is named in honor of Joel Roberts Poinsett, a statesman, physician and botanist from South Carolina. Poinsett is most remembered today as the discoverer of the Mexican Poinsettia plant, whose bright red flowers are popularly included in festive Christmas decorations throughout the world."
Abingdon Episcopal Church is at 4645 George Washington Memorial Highway, Gloucester.
