The program will include: Trio in D Major, Op. 70, No. 1, "Ghost" by Ludwig van Beethoven, and Three Statements for Piano Trio by Daniel Gilliam, and Trio in E minor, Op. 67 by Dmitri Shostakovich.

The Arsenal Trio was born when cellist Hrant Parsamian wanted to play with violinist Benjamin Sung and pianist Jihye Chang for his final recital as Cello Fellow of the Montgomery Symphony in 2006. Since then, the Montgomery Trio has covered considerable ground both musically and geographically. Performances from New York City to Florida have delighted audiences with repertoire ranging from Mozart and Schubert to world premieres for piano trio. They have held residencies with the University of Louisville and the Summer Chamber Music Residency at The Banff Centre, Canada. The Arsenal Trio has also taken part in a variety of series throughout the country such as the Chamber Music ff series and the Nelson Losett Performing Arts Series in Minnesota. They are committed to inspiring a new generation of music lovers and bringing friends together through the joy of chamber music. Since the Montgomery Symphony Orchestra named Jihye the second Honorary Fellow in its history, the Arsenal Trio is the one and only All-MSO Fellow ensemble.

Parking: Free parking is available only in the Dogwood Lot directly in front of the Ogle Center from one hour before the performance until one hour after the conclusion of the performance. Vehicles parked in lots other than the Dogwood Lot without a permit will be ticketed.
