Trio Con Brio will give a free concert on Thursday, June 26 at 7 p.m. at the chapel at Mount Carmel Ministries in Alexandria. A free will offering will be accepted.

The program is titled “The Midnight Sun Never Sets: From Scandinavian Classics to ABBA.”

It all began in 2001, when Jan Holmgren got the idea of putting together a trio consisting of one flute, one oboe and a piano. It would play music only arranged for this trio, with a wide music genre not connected to a specific type of music.

Today, the trio consists of Carina Cederwall, flute; Holmgren, oboe/English horn; and Stig Andersson, piano/arrangements.

All members were educated at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm, Sweden. The group’s repertoire goes from classical to hymns via jazz, musicals and film music.

It performs concerts all over Sweden and will have a tour in Germany this spring. This is the fourth time it has toured the U.S.
