The Joshua Trio

THE JOSHUA TRIO
Emil Miland, cello | Ann Moss, soprano | Meredith Clark, harp

Sunday | January 21, 2018 | 4:00 pm
Noe Valley Ministry

This newly formed chamber ensemble comprises three artists who are beloved in the Bay Area—cellist Emil Miland, harpist Meredith Clark, and soprano Ann Moss. Born and raised in the Bay Area, Emil Miland has now been a member of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra for nearly 30 years. Ann Moss is a champion of contemporary vocal music who has been described as a “transformative artist” with a “sweetly crystalline sound” (San Francisco Classical Voice). Meredith Clark is a versatile harpist, whose varied interests have taken her all over the world to perform as a soloist, chamber musician, and as part of an orchestra. To help celebrate the 300th anniversary of Emil’s cello, these three prominent musicians will come together to deliver a performance unlike any other. All guests are invited to mingle with the artists at a hosted AfterParty reception and conversation moderated by Bruce Lamott, immediately following the performance.
