On Saturday’s live broadcast, we feature student chamber groups from the Merit School of Music in anticipation of Performathon, the school’s annual fundraiser that takes place February 24 and February 25. The fundraiser helps ensure that the Alice S. Pfaelzer Conservatory stays tuition-free for music students. The first ensemble we’ll feature is the KGT Woodwind Trio. The trio recently won the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in the Junior Wind Division. In addition, KGT received Third Prize at the first M-Prize International Chamber Music Competition at the University of Michigan. Their members include flutist Maddy Deanne (Evergreen Park High School), clarinetist Amer Hasan (Carl Sandburg High School), and bassoonist Quincey Trojanowski (Montini Catholic High School).
