Kimball was proud to partner with Jasper Community Arts to host world-renowned, Poulenc Trio for a special Cappuccino Concert event. Oboist, James Austin Smith, pianist, Irina Kaplan, and bassoonist, Bryan Young brought their musical talents to the Kimball headquarters for an informal concert and discussion series on Monday, January 28, 2019.

The trio played some of their new, world-premiere and commissioned music for Kimball employees, Jasper Community Arts board members, and community guests. The piano used during the trio’s performance was the last Kimball piano ever produced and features the signatures of all the employees who had a hand in making it.
