The first Classics at Picton concert for 2017 is almost here and promises to delight music fans.

The celebrated Mirabella Trio will treat the local audience to their scintillating sounds at Picton’s Wollondilly Shire Hall this Sunday, March 26.

Japan’s Sayaka Eguchi, Hanae McLean and Kayoko Nishiwaki make up the Mirabella Trio, playing the violin, clarinet and piano respectively.

They return by popular request after delighting audiences at a previous Classics at Picton concert.

The musicians began practicing music in their homeland before gaining popularity overseas.

Eguchi studied in the US, McLean honed her craft in Brisbane and Nishiwaki gained her master’s degree in Moscow.

They have been performing together since 2011, when McLean joined Eguchi and Nishiwaki, who had begun performing in Sydney.

For their upcoming concert the trio will play a broad repertoire, featuring both well-known and obscure composers’ work.

They will play works from JS Bach, GianCarlo Menotti, Charles Widor, Pierre Dubois and Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe.

The concert will begin at 1.30pm.

Tickets are $20 adult, including afternoon tea. Children and music students are admitted free.
