“Trio Barclay appears to have sprung to life fully formed… a group whose members already interact with precision and ease, who feint and dodge as if of one mind.” – Voice of OC
Trio Barclay (comprised of violinist Dennis Kim, cellist Jonah Kim, and pianist Sean Kennard) is an ensemble of big musical personalities who have joined together to create dynamic and exciting musical experiences. The ensemble made its stellar debut at Irvine’s Barclay Theatre in June 2021 and is the first Ensemble-in-Residence in the Barclay’s 30-year history.
Born in Seoul, South Korea, Kim taught himself the cello watching VHS tapes of Pablo Casals. He was awarded full scholarship to The Juilliard School’s Pre-College Division at the age of seven. Click to learn more.
