On May 31, 2019 The New Classical FM presented a Zoomer Hall Concert featuring the MIR Trio, as part of Jewish Music Week Toronto.
The MIR Trio offer a refreshing addition to Toronto’s musical landscape. Mark Skazinetsky, Igor Gefter and Rachael Kerr play with beautiful nuance and subtlety. These three stellar musicians present an enchanting hour of music by living Jewish composers.
BIOGRAPHY: Founded in 2016, the MIR Trio unites the forces of Toronto talents Mark Skazinetsky (violin), Igor Gefter (cello), and Rachael Kerr (piano). Their mission is to give a voice to Jewish composers focusing on both living composers and under-represented composers from the past. Recently the MIR Trio was selected to perform at the opening of the Royal Ontario Museum’s historic Holocaust exhibit “The Evidence Room”. The trio opened the 2018-2019 season of Les Amis Concerts and has performed extensively at Temple Sinai in Toronto. www.mirtrio.com
