Free Concert New York Trio
The Trio performs a wide range of music spanning several centuries and countries. In addition to classical music, the concert will include Brazilian pop, contemporary Hasidic, and folk tunes. Members of the trio are working New York City musicians and teachers who are vacationing in Kansas with trio member and cellist, Ben Clinesmith, who grew up in Ft. Scott before moving to the east coast as a young cellist. Ben's father, Carl Clinesmith, was a teacher in the Ft. Scott public schools for over 30 years and is remembered by many in the community. The concert is casual, free, family friendly, and open to all.
