Lux in Flux!
In October 2022, Lux welcomed Rosa Thompson-Vieira as our new cellist!
We spent a wonderful 21/22 season with cellist Käthe Jarka and violinist Marc Levine, but they sadly had to leave us all too soon. They are forever cherished friends, and join the list of fabulous musicians who have been a part of the Lux family.
In the 22/23 season, Stephanie, Kirsti and Rosa perform as a string trio!

These three compelling works for string trio by Darius Milhaud, Krzysztof Penderecki, and Twin Cities’ composer David Evan Thomas are all pieces that highlight how dynamic and expressive the string trio art form can be.
French composer Milhaud wrote his trio in 1947. He loved melody, and all three voices dance around the full range of their instruments in this polyphonic work. Penderecki, one of the most important and influential composers of the last hundred years, is known for pushing the boundaries of music, but in his only string trio written in 1990 he returns to classical structure, infusing it with his unique and powerful voice. Thomas’s Trio Innocente, written in 2008, takes us through a songful, rhythmic, and uplifting journey.
