Trio Saint-Laurent brings together three of Canada’s most respected chamber musicians—clarinetist Jean-François Normand, violist Marina Thibeault, and pianist Philip Chiu, in a unique and compelling chamber formation. The trio’s programs have been curated to highlight the poetic, intimate, and mysterious nature of their instruments—in solo, duo, and trio form—to deliver a varied and engaging experience.

The trio has appeared at the Festival Classica, ARAMusique, the Salle J. Antonio-Thompson, Domaine Forget, the Chapelle Historique du Bon Pasteur, as well as at numerous venues in Eastern Canada while on tour with Debut Atlantic. Upcoming engagements include a 10-concert tour in Montreal neighborhoods with the Conseil des Arts de Montreal and across Quebec during the 2018-19 season.
