A relative newcomer to the DC area chamber music scene, The Shepherd Trio formed to explore the beauty and diversity of music written for the unique combination of voice, clarinet and piano. The mission of The Shepherd Trio is not only to perform standard works written for the group, but to pursue new and exciting arrangements and compositions for this simple yet versatile ensemble.
