PARHELION TRIO

Praised by The Strad magazine for their "effervescent" playing, Parhelion—Sarah Carrier (flute), Ashleé Miller (clarinet), and Andrea Christie (piano)—is a New York City-based ensemble dedicated to bringing virtuosic, robust, and impactful contemporary music to diverse audiences.

Highlights from past concert seasons include performances at Carnegie Hall, National Sawdust, Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavík, Musikhuset in Aarhus, The Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen, Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “ETHEL and Friends” Series, Cornelia Street Café, Southampton Cultural Center, CUNY Graduate Center, and Stony Brook University among many others. Parhelion has held residencies at Avaloch Farm Music Institute, Adelphi University’s “New Music XII”, and New Music For Strings Festival, along with an ensemble fellowship at the 2018 Blackbird Creative Lab.

As strong advocates for contemporary music, Parhelion has presented workshops and performances for young composers of the New York Philharmonic’s “The Composer’s Bridge” program and the National Flute Association’s Annual Convention. Parhelion has presented lecture-recitals and masterclasses for students at Adelphi University and St. Joseph’s College. In the past four seasons, Parhelion has premiered over 20 new works dedicated to or written by the trio.

Parhelion was a semi-finalist in the inaugural M-Prize International Chamber Music Competition, the largest chamber competition in the world, and was offered a one-year management prize.

The Parhelion Trio was formed in 2010 at the Institute and Festival for Contemporary Performance at Mannes College The New School for Music.
