The Poinsett Piano Trio was founded in 2008 by pianist David Gross, violinist Deirdre Hutton, and cellist Christopher Hutton. All three members live in Greenville, South Carolina where they teach at Furman University.  As a trio they have played concerts across the United States, and International tours to New Zealand and Germany.  They will be returning to New Zealand for a 13-concert tour in May of 2013.
