With more than 300 concerts in its first five seasons alone, The Manhattan Piano Trio is one of the most active groups in the classical music scene, welcomed by enthusiastic audiences in over 30 states and across three continents. They have performed at venues such as Alice Tully Hall, Merkin Hall and the Ravinia Festival.

It is also supported by the Performing Arts Fund, a program of Arts Midwest, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes a great nation deserves great art. The series includes additional contributions from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, General Mills Foundation and Land O’ Lakes Foundation.
