Milton alumnae Emily Bruskin ’98 and Julia Bruskin ’98, first prize winners of the 2001 young concert artists international auditions, will perform at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum on Sunday, September 29.

The Gardner Museum’s Sunday Concert Series presents classical chamber music performed by prestigious artists. The trio will perform Beethoven’s, “Trio in E Flat, Op. 1#1,” Mason Bates’ “String Band” and Ravel’s “Trio.”

Emily and Julia perform at the Gardner as members of The Claremont Trio. Emily, a violinist, and Julia, a cellist, formed The Claremont Trio with Donna Kwong, a pianist, in 1999, at the Taos School of Music.

During the summer of 2002, The Claremont Trio traveled to Slovenia and Croatia as part of a cultural exchange co-sponsored by the U.S. State Department and Carnegie Hall. The Trio’s 2002-2003 season includes concerts at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall as part of the Alexander Schneider Chamber Music Series, the UCLA Center for the Performing Arts, the Albany (GA) Concert Association and the Cincinnati Chamber Music Society, performances in Scarborough, NY, Ocala, FL, Livingston, NJ, Half Moon Bay, CA, and New Canaan, CT.
