The Portland Piano Trio, recognized as “among the city’s must-hear groups” by critic Allan Kozinn, has played public performances and house concerts throughout Maine and New England, including in Portland, Portsmouth, Camden, Freeport, and Peaks Island. Musicians Tracey Jasas-Hardel (violin), Wayne Smith (cello), and Anastasia Antonacos (piano) are committed to bringing “energy, understanding, technique, insight, great beauty, humor, impressive ensemble, and shared musical values” to the music they play. Their varied programs feature traditional repertoire alongside newer works.
The Portland Piano Trio is the resident ensemble of 240 Strings, which builds community among Portland, Maine youth through subsidized music lessons and affordable chamber music concerts. The trio was chosen for a week-long residency in both 2017 and 2018 at the prestigious Avaloch Farm Institute in New Hampshire.
