The three colleagues at the Sarasota Opera were researching repertory when they discovered a trove of lesser-known pieces they felt had been overlooked and merited to be heard. This motivated the official formation of their ensemble and led to a number of subsequent performances, earning them praise for their interesting programming and expressive playing.
