About Kata Trio
Kata Trio comprises three accomplished Houston musicians who cannot resist the rich offerings of the chamber music repertoire, and welcome the opportunity to connect with an audience through this timeless music.

Sherry Cheng
Pianist Sherry Cheng holds a Master of Music degree in piano performance from the University of Maryland and a Bachelor of Music degree in piano performance from the University of Oklahoma. Ms. Cheng performs frequently in chamber music concerts in the Houston area, collaborating with musicians from the Houston Symphony and other freelance musicians. Most recently she has performed with her husband at the Wuhan Conservatory of Music, in Jones Hall with HSO cellist Christopher French, with pianist Ilgin Aka in duo piano recitals at HBU and the University of Texas in Brownsville, and collaborated with composer Joe LoCascio and soprano Alison Greene on the premiere of several new song cycles. Ms. Cheng is the founder and director of the HCC Chamber Music Series, which brings innovative classical chamber music programming featuring some of Houston's finest professional musicians to the community at large. Ms. Cheng is also a music writer for Arts and Culture Texas Magazine.

Annie Chen
A native of Taiwan, Annie began her musical studies at age 6 on piano and shortly thereafter she began studies on the violin at age 8. She moved to the United States, at the age 14, to continue her music education at the Walnut Hill School for the Arts and the New England Conservatory Preparatory Program in Boston.

Annie has been a participant at numerous summer music festivals including the Heifetz International Music Institute, the Music Academy of the West where she was a winner of 2011 concerto competition, and the Tanglewood Music Center. She has toured with the Youth Orchestra of the Americas and was a regular member of Discovery Ensemble, a Boston-based chamber orchestra that also provides outreach concerts to inner-city schools with no music programs. Annie has also been featured as a soloist with the Dorchester Symphony Orchestra.

Annie holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the New England Conservatory in Boston and her Masters degree from the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, where she held the Shepherd School Distinguished Fellowship in Violin. Her principal teachers have included Lynn Chang, James Buswell, and Kathleen Winkler.

Louis-Marie Fardet
Louis-Marie Fardet was appointed Cellist of the Houston Symphony in January 2015. Previously, he served as Assistant Principal Cellist for the Houston Grand Opera and Ballet since 2006, and prior to moving to Houston, he was a tenured member of L’Opéra de Paris Orchestra for five years. Born in Rochefort, the south-west coast of France, Mr. Fardet moved to Paris to pursue his cello studies at the prestigious Paris Conservatory, then came to Houston in 1999 to study with Paul Katz at Rice University. He has won top prizes in several International Competitions including Antonio Janigro (Zagreb) and Ima Hogg (Houston), and has participated in numerous International Music Festivals such as Ravinia Festival, the Isaac Stern Chamber Music Workshop in Carnegie Hall, and Chamber Music Encounters in Jerusalem.
