Kelly Ker Hackleman, Artistic Director, Community Concerts at Shawnee Presbyterian Church

We were excited to include the Lyric Arts Trio in our concert series, and their performance exceeded our expectations. These three musicians are each exceptional artists in their own right, but their masterful playing/singing in this unusual instrumentation made us forget that we were hearing only three musicians. The variety of tonal shades they created as an ensemble seemed completely organic and natural; in this sense, they were as one instrument. Their theme for the concert, “Of Love and Remembrance,” filled our hearts with love and memories of not only our own, but of the beautiful sounds we heard that afternoon that we will carry with us for some time to come.
