Sundance Trio
Christian Smith, bassoon; Geralyn Giovannetti, oboe; Jed Moss, piano

Sundance Trio was formed in 2005 to explore and perform trios written for oboe, bassoon and piano. Members included oboist Geralyn Giovannetti, bassoonist Christian Smith, and the late pianist Jed Moss. Together the trio has performed throughout the United States, Canada and Europe at colleges, chamber music series and at conferences. In 2014 the BYU School of Music commissioned Utah composer, Alyssa Morris to write for the trio. Her composition, Up and Away (Story of a Balloon) was premiered in New York City at NYU as part of the IDRS Conference. Recent tours took the Sundance Trio to Ireland, Ontario, and Quebec as well as many locations in California, Colorado, Arizona, Georgia, Idaho and Utah. Their third CD recording, “Up and Away” was released in 2017 on the Tantara label. Of this CD, Fanfare Magazine wrote, “The playing of the Sundance Trio is exemplary to the point that I could not imagine better performances of these works, each of which is a true gem of woodwind chamber music. I cannot conceive of anyone hearing this disc being anything less than thrilled with it.”
