About the Show: 

Picosa’s program showcases the brilliance of each individual instrument in this bright, colorful, and virtuosic concert. From the Piano Trio, op. 11 written in 1797 by Beethoven early in his career to Birds of Paradise written in 2017 by Chicago composer Shulamit Ran well after she’d won most major composition awards, we see how this remarkable range of composers sets each instrument to shine in its own way and in their unique styles. Journey with Picosa across 220 years of wonderful repertoire. Be sure to stop by after the concert to speak with the musicians!

About Picosa: 

Picosa reflects an expansive and inclusive view of music in its artistry, programming, and concert experience. A Chicago-based ensemble comprised of flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano, and composer-in-residence, Picosa champions the works of Chicago composers onstage each season. The ensemble also showcases music from diverse historical and cultural contexts and hosts its multiple  ongoing concert series at DePaul University’s Holtschneider Performance Center, Epiphany Center for the Arts, and The Driehaus Museum. Every concert experience is a community building event, and the musicians welcome conversations with the audience in post-concert receptions and in social media.

Founded in 2014, Picosa’s recent performances include Live from WFMT with Kerry Frumkin, Rush Hour Concert Series, Chicago’s Cultural Center, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Ear Taxi Festival, and Frequency Series at Constellation Chicago.  The ensemble has also held guest residencies at Elmhurst University, North Central College, and Roosevelt University.

Picosa is a 501(c)3 organization that relies on the support of music lovers to bring great performances to the stage. Please visit
