The Fairfield Public Library will host its trio in residence, the Lions Gate Trio, for a free chamber music concert on Sunday, Sept. 8. The concert will take place at 3 p.m. in the Memorial Room of the main library, 1080 Old Post Road.
The trio -- pianist Florence Millet, violinist Katie Lansdale and cellist Darrett Adkins -- will perform two major works from the early Romantic period, Trio in E-flat Major, by Franz Schubert, and Beethoven's Ghost Trio, Opus 70, No. 1.
The trio's musical director, Peter Alexander, will introduce the program, discussing the composers and the pieces. A reception will follow the concert with an opportunity to meet the artists and enjoy light refreshments.
The Lions Gate Trio has served residencies at Tanglewood, Yale University and the University of Pittsburgh, and is currently the trio in residence in Connecticut at both the Hartt School at the University of Hartford and the Fairfield Public Library. The program is presented by the Friends of the Fairfield Public Library.
