 Troica releases its first CD

Contributed by Diane Birr on 09/08/2010 

Troica, the trio comprised of Diane Birr (piano), Steven Mauk (saxophone) and Kim Dunnick (trumpet), has released its first recording entitled TROICA: music for trumpet, saxophone, and piano.  Over the past ten years, the trio has been championing this genre, searching for existing music and encouraging composers to write new works for this unique combination of instruments.  This past summer Troica premiered three pieces written expressly for the ensemble.  The new CD release contains a number of compositions written for and dedicated to the trio.

CDs may be found locally at Hickey’s Music Center and at the Ithaca College Bookstore.
