About the Event

Aylesbury Lunchtime Music presents exceptional live music every Thursday lunchtime. 

The Kassia Trio

Chloe Percy-Smith and Emma Jones (saxophone), Amy Bladon (piano) 

Through exploring a range of repertoire, the trio’s aim is to keep classical music accessible, as well as helping to promote the saxophone as a classical instrument.

Their repertoire ranges from modern pieces written for their specific instrumentation, to classical transcriptions, as well as lighter well-known musical classics. Their saxophone line-up is interchangeable, covering soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones. Recent performances have included recitals in Cheltenham, Bristol, Birmingham and London. The trio have also enjoyed being part of various outreach and community projects, most recently performing in a concert series devised for adults with babies and very young children.
