“The musical performance by the Trio was not just enjoyable but passionate and electrifying. We are indeed fortunate to have such talent come to Mahone Bay and to be enjoyed in the Retreats setting. The weather may have been grey but the music was light, bright, whimsical, animated and definitely a treat for ones soul. We can hardly wait for a recording from this Trio of extremely talented musicians.”

Mass of the New Light
In September 2012 Peter-Anthony and the Togni Trio joined the choirs of Sacred Heart University for the premiere of Peter-Anthony’s Mass of the New Light which was commissioned in celebration of its 50th anniversary as well as the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council. The work is a new and exciting setting of the mass based in the jazz tradition and scored for soloists, the Sacred Heart University Choir, piano, bass, percussion, soprano saxophone, handbells and organ.
