The New Jersey-based classical music ensemble Trio Cordialis will open the 27th season of the Greater Princeton Steinway Society on Sunday, September 11. The concert will take place at 3 p.m. in the Recital Hall at Jacobs Music, 2540 Brunswick Pike (U.S. Route 1), Lawrenceville. A social hour with refreshments and conversation with the musicians will follow their performance.

Trio Cordialis has appeared in public since 2014. The founder, Ingrid Tang, is the co-concertmaster of the Bravura Philharmonic Orchestra.
