The critically acclaimed musicians of the ATOS Trio will open Willamette University’s Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series on Monday, Nov. 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Hudson Hall.

The Washington Post refers to ATOS as “One of the elite piano trios playing before the public today,” and The Detroit Free Press described the trio’s “three voices, one sound,” with “the kind of pitch-perfect unanimity of phrasing, tone, feeling and interpretation that distinguishes the finest groups.”

“The legendary chamber ensembles aren’t only distinguished by their virtuosity or depth of interpretation – both of which are prominently featured with ATOS – it is a unique sound, a timbre that defines the group. From their first utterance, it is clear that ATOS flies at this altitude," said Jean-David Coen, artist-in-residence and director of the Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series. 

General admission tickets are $23, with discounts available for members of the Willamette community, students, children, and Oregon Trail cardholders. Tickets are available through

Also in Hudson Hall on Nov. 14, the public is welcome to observe the trio’s master class for Willamette University students from 1–3 p.m. Admission to the master class is free.
