The Genesis Trio, founded by clarinetist, Jonathan López, violist, Nina Weber, and pianist, Markus Masaites, has come to be known as one of the premier chamber ensembles at the University of British Columbia. Established through a shared passion for performing and love for chamber music, the trio has performed for a variety of audiences, garnering city-wide acclaim. Additionally, its members have performed across North America and countries including Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil, the UK, Austria, Italy, Ghana and China.
In 2018, the trio was invited to perform at the renowned Brevard Music Festival and the following year took first prize at the 65th Annual Friends of Chamber Music Competition. They have been featured on several Vancouver based concert series including the Roedde House Classical Series, Music Friends, the Vancouver Women's Music Society and regularly on the Health Art Society’s Concerts in Care.
This past summer, the Genesis Trio traveled to El Paso, Texas to present interactive performances for thousands of youth. They then proceeded to New York City to take part in Ensemble Connect's Audience Engagement Intensive program at Carnegie Hall.
