Formed in 2007, the Cavell Trio is a collaboration born out of friendship and a desire to share the love of music-making with others.  Oboe player Shelly Megginson, clarinetist Osiris J. Molina, and bassoonist Jenny Mann are faculty members at the University of Alabama School of Music, but their trip to Hot Springs is a homecoming of sorts.

Jenny Mann and Osiris Molina were both apprentices at the Hot Springs Music Festival in 1999 and performed with the Festival Orchestra on three compact discs now distributed worldwide on the Naxos/Marco Polo label.  They also took part in the Public Broadcasting Service documentary, “The Sound of Dreams,” which made its debut in February 2001, won a Regional Emmy, and continues to be broadcast nationwide.  Dr. Jenny Mann now serves as the Festival’s Bassoon Mentor.

About the Cavell Trio

The Cavell Trio musicians are active as performers, teachers, and chamber music coaches, and their individual commitment to education and outreach is evidenced in their myriad collective activities – performing, coaching, outreach performances, festival appearances, international travel, and commissioning.

The ensemble takes it name from Mount Edith Cavell, which is located in the Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. Set in the Athabasca River and Astoria River valleys, Mouth Edith Cavell is known particularly for the Angel Glacier, which hangs over a cliff on its north face.

The Cavell Trio has performed at distinguished international conferences including the 2007 International Experiencing Villa-Lobos Conference, the 2011 and 2012 International Double Reed Society Conferences and the 2012 International Clarinet Festival and continues to keep an active schedule with performances across the nation.  A comprehensive performance schedule is available at www.facebook.com/TheCavellTrio.

The trio released their debut recording, The Art of Collective Invention, on the Blue Griffin label in April of 2012.  This celebrated recording presents familiar and obscure works by Villa-Lobos, Hétu, Feld, Françaix, Szałowski and Ibert.  It is available on iTunes, Amazon.com and bluegriffinrecords.com.
