The Overtonic Trio explores the world of popular music over the centuries. The ensemble’s ability to move seamlessly through styles and eras takes you on a journey from jazz and folk favourites through their origins in classical and traditional music. The unique combination of instruments (marimba, vibraphone, piano) creates a special sonic world where you can experience essential music in a new way. The Overtonic Trio was created by Cameron Denby with long-time collaborators Caroline Bucher (percussion) and Kiara Nathaniel (piano).
Although the Overtonic Trio is launching their inaugural tour, each of the performers have made their mark locally and across the country.
Members can be seen regularly with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Kamloops Symphony Orchestra, Little Opera Company, Chai Folk Ensemble, and the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra. They are also all passionate music educators, teaching clinics, masterclasses, and private lessons.
The trio performs music by Scott Joplin, György Ligeti, Maurice Ravel, Zez Confrey, Artie Matthews, Duke Ellington, as well as contemporary music by pianist/resident composer Kiara Nathaniel. Her genre-blending compositional style mixed with the spectacular sounds of the instruments creates a musical experience that can only come from the Overtonic Trio.
