Classical Sundays presents Trio Sefardi 

on April 14th at 4 PM

Founded in January 2010, Trio Sefardi is a confluence of three performers who share a love of Sephardic songs about love, loss, daily life, holidays, and history from Turkey and the Balkans. 

Susan Gaeta, vocals, guitar, Tina Chancey, viol, Renaissance violin, Pontic lyra, 

rebec, and Howard Bass, guitar, lute.

Group members combine a respect for tradition with a creative approach to arranging and scoring dedicated to bringing the vibrant past into the living present.


Washington Post chief music critic, Ann Midgette, praised the group’s “lovely and luminous performance of Sephardic songs” and vocalist Susan Gaeta’s voice as “compelling” in a review of a performance at the Kennedy Center with the Post-Classical Ensemble.
