Amorsima Trio is a boundary-pushing ensemble that redefines the traditional expectations of a string trio, bringing a fresh and contemporary perspective to the stage. Comprised of violinist Mia Detwiler, violist Michael Capone, and cellist Kourtney Newton, the trio was founded in 2016 through a shared passion for new music. With an unwavering commitment to expanding the string trio repertoire, the Amorsima Trio actively commissions new works, seeking out collaborations with innovative composers. Recent projects include the premiere of 21 miniatures in response to Beethoven's 250th anniversary and performances as a featured ensemble at the University of Louisville New Music Festival, Mise-en Music Festival, and New Music on the Bayou. The name "Amorsima,” which means "that which does not come from fate" was inspired by the Xenakis work Morsima-Amorsima and symbolizes their pursuit to redefine the traditional expectations of the string trio.
