Kansas-based chamber music ensemble The Sunflower Trio will present a recital on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 in Rieth Recital Hall. Their program will feature works by Mennonite composer J. Harold Moyer.
Formed in 2002, The Sunflower Trio is dedicated to the performance of music featuring voice, violin and keyboard. Consisting of Matthew Schloneger, tenor, Rebecca Schloneger, violin, and Kenneth Rodgers, piano & organ, the group excels in a variety of styles, with an eclectic repertoire ranging from Bach to Broadway. The trio is also a family affair: Matthew and Rebecca are and husband and wife, and Kenneth is Matthew’s uncle. All three serve as members of the music faculty at Hesston College, Kansas.
The trio has performed extensively throughout the United States as a part of the Kansas Arts Commission and Mid-America Arts Alliance touring rosters. The Sunflower Trio released its first CD, All Good Gifts, featuring arrangements of familiar classical and popular songs, in 2005.
