The Merz Trio was formed in January 2017 when pianist Lee Dionne and cellist Julia Yang were members of Ensemble Connect, a fellowship program in New York City run jointly by Carnegie Hall and the Juilliard School. 

They joined with violinist Brigid Coleridge, who had collaborated with Dionne several years earlier at the Vermont-based Yellow Barn music festival and was in New York at the time as a doctoral candidate at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

They are currently the Graduate Piano Trio in residence at the New England Conservatory in Boston.

The Trio has gained recognition as Winners of the 2019 Concert Artists Guild Competition and Gold Medalists of the Fischoff and Chesapeake International Chamber Music Competitions. They are currently the Graduate Piano Trio in residence at the New England Conservatory in Boston.

Guest Feedback

Georgia and I would like to thank you for sharing this afternoon’s outstanding concert.  The Merz Trio was amazing.  We feel so blessed and refreshed. We need experiences like today’s concert now more than ever.  These are difficult times. There is nothing more beautiful than combining the arts with nature. This afternoon’s concert was the perfect elixir. Hiking, and being in the woods, has been our salvation during the pandemic. I often have a melody in head and a camera in my hand.  Georgia and I feel so grateful for having Summer Star so close by and the access you generously provide to the arts and nature.  Take care, stay healthy and we look forward to seeing again you soon.
