In residence at Iowa State University, their concert and master class calendar during the 2015-16 season includes performances in Norfolk and Williamsburg, Virginia, Eastern Shore, North Carolina, Mount Vernon, Illinois and Iowa, and recent past performances include Columbus, Ohio, and Barrie, Ontario. Their forthcoming release on the Fleur de Son label will feature the world première recording of George Tsontakis’ Piano Quartet #3.
