Three renowned visionary artists of the next generation—violinist Stefan Jackiw, pianist Conrad Tao, and cellist Jay Campbell—combine talents in this eclectic new piano trio, JCT (pronounced “junction”). Recent concerts of the trio include performances at Washington Performing Arts, Portland Ovations, and the Royal Conservatory in Toronto.

Hailed for playing of “uncommon musical substance” that is “striking for its intelligence and sensitivity” (Boston Globe), violinist Stefan Jackiw is recognized for his musicianship that combines poetry and purity with impeccable technique, appearing as soloist with the Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco symphony orchestras, among others. Cellist Jay Campbell has been called “electrifying” by The New York Times, as he approaches both old and new works with the same curiosity and emotional commitment.

Conrad Tao has appeared worldwide as a pianist and composer, and has been dubbed a musician of “probing intellect and open-hearted vision” by The New York Times, a “thoughtful and mature composer” by NPR, and “ferociously talented” by Time Out New York. He has earned numerous awards and distinctions, including a YoungArts gold medal in music and an Avery Fisher Career Grant, and being named a Lincoln Center Emerging Artist, a Gilmore Young Artist, and a Presidential Scholar in the Arts by the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars.
