The Kat Trio to perform at Zion United Methodist Church

The violin-clarinet-piano ensemble from Ekaterinburg, Russia, was formed in May 1998 in Ekaterinburg by three friends: Victoria Gorbich (violin), Vladislav Gorbich (clarinet), and Vasil Galiulin (piano).

They had just graduated from the Ural State Music Conservatory. Today, The Kat Trio is Victoria, Vladislav, and pianist Joseph Ross. Victoria and Vlad are doctoral graduates of Arizona State University. Joseph is a graduate of Lawrence University and the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, Hungary.

Their concerts showcase unique Russian arrangements and transpositions of timeless melodies and feature classical works, well-known inspirational songs, and even American pop standards, including Scott Joplin’s rags.

On Sunday, Oct, 27, the Kat Trio will play a concert during the 8:45 a.m. worship service at Zion United Methodist Church, located at 200 W. Bluff Street, Neshkoro. The Trios repertoire includes classical pieces, hymns, inspirational songs, and unique Kat Trio arrangements of American standards.
