"I am always amazed with the talented musicians of the Aviara Trio. I have had the opportunity numerous times to see them perform at both indoor and outdoor venues. They have performed but privately and publicly and it is always a treat to be at their concerts. The synergy created between the musicians is magical and the variety of music that is presented is always appreciated and enjoyed thoroughly by all. I highly recommend the Aviara Trio and look forward to experiencing their future performances. We are fortunate to have them in our community."

"It was so wonderful!! A lovely gathering to listen to and watch these excellent musicians play! All social distancing and friendly!"
-Taryn Briggs, Harbor Woods Resident
"Aviara Trio was the best group yet. Everyone was spellbound! I, myself, was left breathless at the end of both the Mendelssohn and the Dvorak."
-Loren Golden, Concert Director of Encinitas-by the-Sea Soirée
"It was a breath of fresh air during this pandemic. They played a beautiful piece by Mendelssohn, the theme to Game of Thrones, and Gershwin's Summertime. Something for everyone!"
-Scott Westerfield, Pelican Ridge Resident
"Such an amazing way to see and hear the talent of these world class performers! Their witty commentary and varied repertoire entertained young and old, from avid symphony supporters to those who never had experienced classical music. Definitely a memorable highlight of the season!"
-Sherry Abbott, Newport Coast Resident
"In forming this trio, Erin, Ines and Rob bring the highest level of instrumental perfection, intensity, passion, and expression to this perfect combination of instruments. Each one, an individual performer of the highest caliber, manages to bring out the best in each other... shining on their instruments while blending and harmonizing to deliver the most pleasing results."
-Harvey Levine, Artistic Director, Rancho Bernardo Chamber Music Series
"Yesterday, we were privileged to attend a coronavirus-safe outdoor performance by the Aviara Trio, a professional ensemble of world-class musicians based here in our area. The performance was fantastic! A small gathering of Pelican Ridge neighbors and friends came with their folding chairs and set up socially distanced to enjoy a superb, intimate concert in our cul-de-sac. If you have a neighborhood, lawn or park that can accommodate a small gathering, we strongly recommend booking them for an event."
-Ed Miskevich, Pelican Ridge Resident
"I had the pleasure of hosting the Aviara Trio at my home. Erin, Ines, and Rob played in my backyard and it was everything I could've asked for and more. It was easy to socially distance and still enjoy live music which is lacking at this time. Without the symphony this year it was so sad not to have the arts. Being able to have them come play was such a pleasure. They are all extremely talented individuals and they worked with me to create a beautiful program. I will definitely have them return for another concert in the future."
-Leslie E, Crystal Cove Resident
"The Aviara Trio is amazing! Between their wonderful musicianship and professionalism, they pulled off not one, but two live virtual performances for events that I helped to plan. Skepticism ran high that a live concert could work in a virtual setting, but both performances were a complete success. Attendees at both events were moved to tears by the Trio's beautiful playing - and by the opportunity to enjoy live music for the first time in months! These were truly special and meaningful concerts. Both concerts ran about 20 minutes, and included traditional favorites by Mendelssohn and Beethoven as well as less familiar but fantastic pieces by Gaspar Cassado, Astor Piazzolla, and the movie "Ladies in Lavender". The acoustics of the performance space were also wonderful. I would definitely recommend the Aviara Trio again for any virtual performance and I hope to hear them in person one day!"
Thank you, Aviara Trio!
-Dr Steven Lulich, Assistant Professor of Speech and Hearing Sciences, Indiana University
"I just wanted to thank you both again for getting the Aviara Trio to play for our Social. My wife and I are both classical music buffs, and really miss live performances. While this was via internet , it was still live and had a LOT more personality than a canned performance (except I missed the clapping and cheers... maybe there is some way to get those next time). And, the group is brilliant! As an amateur pianist (now slowed down due to essential tremor), I, like many in ASA, have a good feel for what the level of musicianship was, and this was world-class. Please, please, please pass on the BRAVO'S that were yelled in the many living rooms that heard their music."
