The Newport Area Community Orchestra has recently added a new chamber group. It is called the Newport Area Community Orchestra Piano Trio, and its members are Howie Arzt (clarinet), Lee Story (piano), and Ken Michelli (euphonium). The standard piano trio consists of a piano, violin, and cello, so this group is somewhat non-traditional. The group rehearses every other Monday at the First Universalist Parish in Derby Line at 10:00 am. The first public performance will be on September 28, 2014 at 4:00 pm at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Newport as part of the Now Playing Newport Concert Series.
