The Iris Trio

On May 30th, the Iris Trio performed their first concert, delighting their audience with Mozart's Trio VII, Schumann's Fairy Tales, and Piazzolla's Oblivion Milonga. Oldest Daughter and her fellow Iris Trio musicians formed their chamber group in the fall and worked throughout the school year on the pieces they played in their concert.

An explanation of their name: the Black Iris (Iris nigricans) is the national flower of Jordan and its flower parts are in threes. A dear friend designed the trio's logo.
