Claremont Trio is a New York-based piano trio including Juilliard School alumnae Emily Bruskin (violin) and Julia Bruskin (cello), and Yale School of Music alumna Sophiko Simsive (piano). The group was founded at Juilliard in 1999, and made its performance debut at the 92nd Street Y, on the Upper East Side in 2001 after winning the Young Concert Artists International Auditions that same year. In 2003, the trio also won the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award.[1] They have performed at the Kennedy Center, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Joe's Pub[2] and the Mostly Mozart and Bard Music festivals.[3]
