New Trio Seeking To Expand Repertoire

Gratus Ensemble (Brittany Hendricks, trumpet; Bruce Faske, trombone; Topher Ruggiero, piano) wishes to expand repertoire for the trumpet/trombone/piano trio instrumentation, and as needed, the inclusion of additional voices as repertoire dictates. Gratus, a Latin adjective meaning pleasing, acceptable, agreeable, or welcome, embodies the supportive environment our group wishes to establish for the sharing of new music through concerts, recordings, and teaching.

Interested composers are invited to submit new works for review as the ensemble builds on a historically limited repertory.
