Zodiac Trio with Ariel Barnes, cello (part of the Chamber Music Kelowna 2017/2018 Concert Season)
The Zodiac Trio is recognized by many to be one of the foremost clarinet-violin-piano ensembles performing today. In its relatively short history, the ensemble formed in 2006 at the Manhattan School of Music before becoming the first American group and the only ensemble with a wind instrument to enter the esteemed Ysaye Quartet Chamber Music program at the Paris Superior Conservatory. The Zodiac Trio has managed to achieve a level of recognition on the international chamber music stage, rarely bestowed upon an ensemble of such untraditional instrumentation.
Ariel Barnes is one of 6 Canadian cellists featured in CBC Radio’s Canadian Bach Cello Suite Project. He has premiered over 50 new works, and collaborated with such diverse artists as Michael Bublé and The Tragically Hip. Ariel Barnes is principal cello of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
