Peace Tour to Indonesia

Swara Sonora in SuarabayaIn August 2009, the Swara Sonora Trio spent 3 weeks traveling in Java and Bali, Indonesia. The goal of the tour was to foster collaboration and understanding between the United States and Indonesia, using the powerful language of music as our common ground.

The trio performed in 4 cities, bringing our Nathan Teachingcommissioned work, Love and Variations, to Indonesia, and also presenting modern American works and standard repertoire from around the world.

In addition to our concert performances, we worked with young musicians in master classes at local conservatories and met with the press and community leaders.
