VAIL — The Vail Public Library welcomes returning musical guests AWE Chamber Trio for a free show on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
“Living the dream” may be the best way to describe the ambitions and goals of the AWE Chamber Trio. The principals, Charles Broschinsky, Emily Zeigler and Carolyn Schneider, have joined musical forces to further their love of different styles of music and present it to the Vail Valley in unique settings and venues. The Chamber Trio tries to include classical, baroque, romantic and contemporary ensemble pieces in its repertoire, while tailoring its music to please anyone.
“We all have a love of music, and each started out playing for our personal enjoyment,” said Zeigler, who plays the flute and is active in The Youth Foundation’s First Notes program in the Eagle County Schools, a program that provides instruments and instruction to elementary school students.
“We first met at the Alpine Wind Ensemble’s practices and performances and gravitated toward each other to fulfill our desire for more music. This has led to opportunities to perform in settings not available to the larger group.”
A semi-retired attorney, Zeigler has found the teaching experience to be rewarding and believes that playing music provides both joy and disciplined learning to the lives of children and adults. Broschinsky, on clarinet, began playing many years ago and has recently expanded his vision for expression through his music. He works as pastry chef at Juniper Restaurant, and his passion for both creative fields is complimentary.
Following Her Dream
For Schneider, also on flute, who has lived in the Vail Valley for 25 years, the dream of being a musician has always been with her.
“I started out as a music major in college playing the flute but drifted away from that and instead joined the U.S. Navy,” she said. “I never really lost my desire for music throughout the years of raising my family, so I was so happy to find the Alpine Wind Ensemble in the Vail Valley and felt it was a great way to follow my dream.”
She now has her bachelor’s degree and has completed that circle of education.
The AWE Chamber Trio has performed at libraries, art shows and events throughout the Eagle Valley. The trio is available to perform at any type of function where music enhances the event. For further information, call Zeigler at 970-748-6991. The AWE Chamber Trio is part of the Alpine Wind Ensemble, a nonprofit organization.
A survey showed a good bit of support for local government action to bolster workforce housing in town. For now though, that support stops at supporting a new tax for funding.
