The Raritan Trio brings together three young musicians of exceptional talent, passion and experience. Formed in January 2019 at Mason Gross School of the Arts- Rutgers University, New Jersey, the trio consists of pianist Alexander Bui, violinist Yu Ouyang, and cellist Jiun-Ru Wang. Born in three different countries, the artists combine their individual cultures and personalities to create wonderful music together.
Coached by Carmit Zori and other internationally renowned musicians, the Raritan Trio has achieved the highest esteem such as winning the Rutgers Chamber Music Competition, Bronze medalist in the American Prize Chamber Music Competition, receiving a full fellowship to Mimir Chamber Music Festival, and being invited to participate in Carnegie Hall’s Audience Engagement Intensive program. Their performance experiences include various venues throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Having a deep passion and love for music, the Raritan Trio hopes to spread and perform classical music around the world.
The name of the Raritan Trio was inspired by the Raritan River that is across from the Mason Gross School of the Arts. The river resembles their warm spirit in hoping that they will leave a long-lasting and meaningful impact to their audiences.
