Tiger Lily Trio is a faculty-ensemble in residence at the University of Delaware School of Music. Its members include Eileen Grycky (flute), Christopher Nichols (clarinet), and Marie-Christine Delbeau (pianoforte). The Trio’s performances of contemporary literature by living composers have garnered invitations to appear throughout North America and Europe, as well as at the 2021 National Flute Association Convention, and the 2017 National Association of Collegiate Wind and Percussion Instructors Conference in Canada. They are dedicated to performing the music of marginalized composers and are active in commissioning new works for the medium. Recent and upcoming commissions include trios by Jennifer Margaret Barker, Anthony O’Toole, Roger Zare, and Cynthia Folio. Beyond its performance activities, Tiger Lily Trio is dedicated to educating the next generation of chamber ensembles. Accordingly, theTtrio serves as the mentoring ensemble for Armonia Trio, a Graduate Fellowship Trio at the University of Delaware.
