Ensemble TrioPolis merges the distinct temperament, stylistic influences, creative spirit and artistic vision of three cosmopolitan musicians based in North Texas: German violinist Felix Olschofka, American clarinetist Kimberly Cole Luevano and Greek-American pianist Anatolia Ioannides. TrioPolis was born following a series of successful collaborations at University of North Texas, Denton. Lecture/recital with composer and Assistant Professor Benjamin Sabey: 1:10 - 2pm. Free.
