    The Prima Trio was formed in 2004 and debuted at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., in 2006. Guilia Gurevich from Uzbekistan (violin/viola), Boris Allakhverdyan from Azerbaijan (clarinet) and Anastasia Dedik from Russia (piano) met as students at the renowned Oberlin Conservatory in Ohio. Each is distinguished as a soloist internationally and as a trio they have met with equal success.
    Among their prizes, Prima Trio won the Grand Prize and Gold Medal in the Senior Division at the prestigious Fischoff Chamber Music Competition in South Bend, Ind., in 2007, earning a domestic tour and debut at Italy’s Emilia Romagna Festival.
    The trio has concertized on stages across North America and Europe and is currently on a 50-city tour of the United States through concert presenter Live On Stage.
