About Beau Soir

The Beau Soir Ensemble is a flute, viola, and harp trio, based in the Washington, DC area, dedicated to the performance of standard and contemporary chamber music repertoire spanning a variety of genres. The group was founded by harpist Michelle Lundy in 2007. Beau Soir Ensemble regularly performs at venues and acclaimed concert series in the Mid-Atlantic region, including the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, Strathmore Mansion, Alden Theatre, Center Stage, Sundays at Three in Columbia, Harman Center for the Arts, Arts Club of Washington, The Lyceum, Church of the Epiphany, Dumbarton House, Washington County Museum of Fine Arts, Old Town Hall (Fairfax, VA), and The Anderson House. The trio also won the 2014 Montpelier Arts Recital Competition.

As part of its commitment to exposing audiences to contemporary music and new artists, Beau Soir frequently offers performances featuring world and local premieres by various exciting composers. Since 2014, the trio has performed local premieres of music by David Bruce, Don Davis, Milton Barnes, Marjan Mozetich, Lucas Richman, Stephen Main, Eduardo Angulo, Sonny Burnette and Paul Ben-Haim.  In 2021, Beau Soir performed the world premiere of “Two Trios” by Alexander Jacobsen, “The Nightfall” by Roberto Di Marino and “Sarabande” by David Teie.  BSE will partner with Truman Harris to premiere a work in 2022.

The innovative group is also dedicated to expanding the repertoire available to flute/viola/harp, including commissioning Baroque transcriptions of music by J.S. Bach and C.P.E. Bach, including his recently found trio sonatas, originally scored for flute, viola and keyboard.

Known for its exciting performance style and diverse programming, Beau Soir continues to attract a strong fan base through its acclaimed performances and unique audience interaction, which includes background, analysis, historical information, and descriptions of performance techniques within each performance. Beau Soir Ensemble’s goal is to make classical music accessible, interesting and enjoyable, inspiring a new generation of music lovers.
