Historic recordings of some of the great singers of yesteryear include numerous performances of salon type songs with an obbligato instrument. Susanna Phillips, Paul Neubauer, and Anne-Marie McDermott continue this tradition with the SPA Trio. These stellar artists first performed together in 2011 in Curacao, in the Netherlands Antilles, and have enjoyed exploring and performing songs of this parlor style from the 19th- and 20th-century European tradition. Susanna Phillips continues to establish herself as one of today’s most sought-after vocalists and recitalists. She is dedicated to oratorio works and is an avid chamber music collaborator. Paul Neubauer’s exceptional musicality and effortless playing led The New York Times to call him “a master musician.” Appointed principal violist of the New York Philharmonic at age 21, he has appeared as soloist with over 100 orchestras globally. Anne-Marie McDermott is a consummate artist who balances a versatile career as a soloist and collaborator. She performs a combination of solo recitals, concerti, and chamber music annually. She also serves as Artistic Director of the Bravo! Vail Music and Ocean Reef Music Festivals, as well as Curator for Chamber Music for the Mainly Mozart Festival in San Diego.
