Five Boroughs Music Festival and Fotografiska New York present Iris Trio's most recent interdisciplinary commissioning project. Project Earth strives to illuminate the impact of human behavior on the environment, addressing issues of climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss, while recognizing the power of our collective imagination to create meaningful change.

Praised for their beauty of sound and striking expression the Iris Trio (clarinetist Christine Carter, violist Zoë Martin-Doike, and pianist Anna Petrova) is known for their imaginative programming and powerhouse performances. They have performed around the world on major concert stages from Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall to the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Sydney Opera House, including a tour of their program, Homage and Inspiration, across Germany. Collectively, the members of the Iris Trio hold positions at Memorial University, the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra (New York City), and University of Louisville.

This concert features a collection of pieces and poetry, and with the cost of admission comes free entrance to the museum too!

Groupmuse ticket buyers are instructed to check in at a table at the entrance.
