The COSMOS TRIO was founded in 2004 by flutist Katherine Borst Jones, violist Mary E.M. Harris and harpist Jeanne Norton, all three members of the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus, to explore music composed for that magical combination of instruments. Inspired by the music of Claude Debussy and Toru Takemitsu, the group initiated a regular commissioning schedule for new music. They have performed on artist series at The Ohio State University, Miami University, Ball State University, Earlham College, Columbus Art Museum and for the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra. They performed their commissioned works on a featured concert in Kansas City at the National Flute Association’s convention in August 2008. They were featured at the International Viola Congress in Cincinnati in June 2010, performing Libby Larsen’s Trio with the composer in attendance. In June of 2014, they performed four of their commissioned pieces at the 41st American Harp Society’s Convention held in New Orleans. Letter from Home was premiered on the Contemporary Music Festival featuring Donald Harris at The Ohio State University.
