The Reverón Trio is named after Venezuelan painter and sculptor Armando Reverón (1889- 1954), one of the earliest American modernists and considered one of the most important visual artists in Latin America. Even though Reverón is now regarded as a highly influential figure in Latin America, his work is not celebrated outside the borders of Venezuela. It is the trio’s wish to enhance multicultural understanding and increase the visibility of Reverón’s work and of Latin American music; for this reason, they are in the process of creating the Sphinx Catalog of Latin American Piano Trios. Ana María, Simón, and Horacio are all Venezuelan artists that have made their home in the United States.
The Museum Cafes will be open prior to the concert if you would like to add a Mother's Day Brunch to your concert ticket.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
The Reverón Piano Trio’s main goal is to introduce audiences to underrepresented music from Latin America alongside contemporary and standard repertoire. These seasoned artists are active promoters of Latin American music through their work as scholars and entrepreneurs, and they have devoted their careers to the discovery, cataloguing, performance, editing, and recording of this rich repertoire. In addition, the trio continues to commission and perform new works: recent collaborations include La Hamaca (2021) and El Ventilador (2022), written for the trio by renowned Venezuelan-American composer Ricardo Lorenz, and the world premiere of Barroqueada (2020) by Grammy-nominated composer Miguel del Águila.
