The Graham-Graber-Rose Trio, or G-G-R Trio, formed in 2013 and gave its debut performance at Trinity Chamber Concerts. Since then the group has performed at Old First Concerts, Four Seasons Arts Cameo Concerts, NoonTime Concerts and other venues. Because works of major composers for this instrumentation are limited, G-G-R Trio also explores arrangements and lesser known works of various composers, including Mikhail Glinka, Marko Tajčević, Paul Juon, and Mendelssohn. Michael Graham, cellist, studied at the Eastman School of Music and Yale University. He performs regularly with many Bay Area orchestras and chamber ensembles. He is also active as a recording artist. Miles Graber received his musical training at the Juilliard School. He is a member of several chamber music groups, including Musica AEterna, the Sor Ensemble, the Alcyone Ensemble, and is a premiere accompanist for many soloists, in the Bay Area and across the nation. Tom Rose studied music at San Francisco State College and Mills College. Mr. Rose is Principal Clarinetist with Music in the Mountains Festival Orchestra and is a member of Trio Brillante. In January 2016 he and Graber released their second CD of music for clarinet and piano.
