Butler Trio

Formed in 2011 out of an undying love for the great art form of the piano trio, the Butler Trio continues to embody that mission with regular concerts of some of the most celebrated and beloved works for the medium. After fifteen years performing together as members of the Miró Quartet, violinist Sandy Yamamoto (retired 2011) and cellist Joshua Gindele were looking to continue to find ways to take the concert stage together. They found the perfect partner in pianist Colette Valentine who not only had a vast knowledge of the repertoire but shared in the unencumbered joy of making music at the highest level. For nine years the Butler Trio has earned acclaim for and impressed audiences with its dynamic, articulate and expressive performances and can often be seen performing at The University of Texas at Austin where its members are currently on the faculty.
