The Delphi Trio in Concert


Please join the Delphi Trio for the third installment of their performance series at the Maybeck featuring Irving Santana Garcia on viola.

Program:
Piano Trio No. 4 in E Minor, Op. 90 "Dumky" by Antonin Dvorak
Piano Quartet in Eb Major, Op. 47 by Robert Schumann

Praised for “spot-on ensemble playing and a beautifully blended sound” (San Francisco Classical Voice) and “rich, committed string tone, dazzling pianism, rhythmic flexibility, and risky tempi” (Sarasota Herald Tribune), the Delphi Trio has become a powerfully eloquent voice in the world of chamber music.

The Delphi Trio is pleased to collaborate with Irving Santana Garcia, viola, who was selected from the spring round of the Delphi Trio's Emerging Artist Program. As a member of the Orchestra of the New Fire, he performed under the baton of Mexican composer Arturo Marquez. In 2009, he was selected as one of the best performers in the state of Colima for a national concert of over 1,500 musicians from Conculta in Mexico City where musicians from throughout Mexico participated.

Praised for “spot-on ensemble playing and a beautifully blended sound” (San Francisco Classical
Voice) and “rich, committed string tone, dazzling pianism, rhythmic flexibility, and risky tempi”
(Sarasota Herald Tribune), the Delphi Trio has become a powerfully eloquent voice in the world of
chamber music.

Prizewinners at the 2015 Orlando International Chamber Music Competition in the Netherlands, Delphi has appeared throughout the USA, Canada, Germany, and the Netherlands. Upcoming highlights include performances throughout California, New York, Vermont, Mississippi, Illinois, Oregon, Washington D.C., concertos with the San Jose Chamber Orchestra and the Oakland Symphony, and the premiere of a forthcoming commissioned work by William Bolcom, written for Delphi. 

Each member of the Delphi Trio maintains a busy schedule of solo, concerto, and chamber music performances, having collaborated with artists such as Robert Mann, Anthony Marwood, and Menahem Pressler. Passionate educators, the Delphi Trio is on faculty at the Crowden School's Summer Chamber Music programs, where the Trio coaches and mentors musicians of all ages. Liana Bérubé, Michelle Kwon, and Jeffrey LaDeur are graduates of the University of Toronto, Stanford University, and the Eastman School of Music, respectively, and formed the Trio while studying in the prestigious Chamber Music Program at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. An ensemble built on trust and communication, each Delphi rehearsal starts in the same way: a meal, conversation, and music.

Irving G. Santana Garcia received his Bachelors of Music at the Fine Arts University Institute (IUBA) of the University of Colima in Mexico. In Colima, he led the bass section of the University of Colima chorus and served as principal viola for orchestral concerts (2006-2013). As a member of the Orchestra of the New Fire, he performed under the baton of Mexican composer Arturo Marquez. In 2009, he was selected as one of the best performers in the state of Colima for a national concert of over 1,500 musicians from Conculta in Mexico City where musicians from throughout Mexico participated. He is currently in his second year of the two-year program for the Master’s degree in music performance at San Francisco State University under the instruction of Paul Yarbrough, viola (Alexander String Quartet).
