Love Is Forever
The Shenandoah Trio Formed in 2001 in New Orleans, this group of musicians, each having a wide range of musical interests, decided to organize in order to promote a diversity of musical styles and genres. Classical music, especially that which is rarely performed, is emphasized on their programs. The unusual combination of mezzo voice, viola and piano adds a timbre to the music which is both warm and bold. The addition of folk songs, and world standards done as trio or as duets gives new light and new sensitivity to these genres and comes as a truly fresh surprise to the listener. One listener, Jim Forette has said,' Their music is better than therapy.'
