The Sunflower Trio has several programs available:
The Sunflower Trio is happy to provide complementary activities to local presenters that help meet the needs of their community. This is often an outreach concert for residents of a local retirement home who are unable to travel to the concert venue or for a local civic organization such as a Rotary club. It can also simply be an appearance at a local event supporting a performing arts series. The trio is quite flexible and willing to tailor activities to the needs of the presenter.
The members of the Sunflower Trio are all accomplished master teachers who serve on the music faculty at Hesston College, Kansas. Rebecca Schloneger is also a member of the Suzuki Violin faculty at Bethel College Academy of Performing Arts in Newton, Kansas. The Sunflower Trio is eager to provide Master Classes and educational residencies for any interested presenters.
