Throughout its almost 40 year history, first as The Bakken Quartet and then as The Bakken Piano Trio, the Bakken musicians have always performed a diverse repertoire including classics, unusual works by old and new composers and world premieres that demonstrate their ability to thrive in difficult and seldom-traveled waters.

A premier chamber ensemble in the Twin Cities, The Bakken Trio has won prestigious McKnight Artist Fellowships, received Metropolitan Regional Arts Council Awards, garnered support for its two CD’s from the American Composers Forum, and performed over 20 seasons of music as The Bakken Trio.

The Bakken Trio is truly a consortium of musical friends who individually design programs of great chamber music and collectively engage an adventurous audience that shares our appreciation of diverse repertoire imaginatively presented. Together we commission and record new work and present old works in contexts that illuminate and refresh.

We are committed to making The Bakken Trio accessible to a broad community of listeners. Donate today so that you and others may continue to enjoy our music. We welcome your contribution at any level of support.
