Wednesday Noon Concert Series: Trio Virado

February 16 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Trio Virado is a unique collaboration of three distinguished artists on flute, viola, and guitar. Flutist Amy Porter, violist Jaime Amador, and guitarist João Luiz are widely sought after for their musical performances on recordings and onstage. Together they form a concert trio that radiates electricity and love of music. Trio Virado’s CD Mangabeira, released in 2015, features world premiere recordings of works written specially for the ensemble by Clarice Assad, Frederic Hand, and Leo Brouwer. Among its recent engagements was a September 2021 concert at Clarion Concerts (Hudson, NY) marking the debut of Mr. Amador as Trio Virado’s newest member, and including music by Maurice Ravel, Astor Piazzolla, Sergiu Assad, and João Luiz himself.

Mr. Luiz is a member of the Brasil Guitar Duo, directs the chamber music program at Hunter College, and teaches guitar at Stony Brook University and Mannes College. Amy Porter, Trio Virado’s other founding member, is an acclaimed orchestral soloist, Principal Flute at North Carolina’s Brevard Music Center, and Professor of Music at the University of Michigan. Jaime Amador, who hails from Puerto Rico, is the viola in Harlem Quartet, which performs widely in the U.S. and abroad. Trio Virado is represented worldwide by New York-based Sciolino Artist Management.
