The masterful Beethoven piano trios have entertained audiences worldwide for centuries. What makes these works so mesmerizing? B3LLA explores these trios with fresh eyes and impassioned personal interpretations and presents them to you. They put the works in context historically and find ways to make the works relevant to our lives today. The emotions evoked in these inspired works have clearly spoken to humanity. Join B3LLA as they continue the tradition and breathe bits of their own hearts and souls into them. B3LLA was founded in 2010 when Mimi experienced the profoundly transformative power of music while battling breast cancer. As a physician, Mimi had embraced and championed wellness – the constant, conscious pursuit of living life mindfully and peacefully. B3LLA seeks to inspire others with that power, through high-quality, live chamber music performance, for anyone open to finding a place of centered peace and calm as an essential part of their mindful journey through life.
