From their first performance in 1978, the members of Trio Lyra have enjoyed a mutual devotion to beauty and perfection in musical expression which is instantly communicated to their audiences. Trio Lyra’s repertoire ranges from Baroque to the best of today’s composers. They have commissioned and premiered major new works from many of Canada’s finest composers including Ben Steinberg, Srul Irving Glick, Milton Barnes, Harry Freedman, Andrew MacDonald and Marjan Mozetich. The nature of the combination of instruments has inspired a particularly rich selection of French repertoire, and Trio Lyra has been featured in all-French programs broadcast by the French CBC, while their performance schedule takes them into Canada and the US. Trio Lyra is Suzanne Shulman (flute), Mark Childs (viola) and Erica Goodman (harp).
