Mayumi Seiler, violin

The Seiler Trio brings together three outstanding Canadian musicians, exploring the great traditions of the piano trio repertoire with their unique blend of intensity, passion and generosity, along with forays into different styles and new Canadian music. Mayumi, Rachel and Angela have performed together in various formations over the last two decades, with the Via Salzburg Chamber Series, Ensemble Made In Canada, and the Mercer-Park Duo, and since 2010 as the Seiler Trio.
“…the audience was transfixed as Seiler and Mercer weaved lyrically in and out with their violin and cello respectively, between an equally memorable piano part by Park…Seiler and Mercer demonstrated seemingly effortless ease…all three ladies played with passion and emotion, leaving even the most athletic people in the room in awe of their stamina.”
