Headlining Artists

lantana trio

The Lantana TrioThe Lantana Trio was formed in 2018 by faculty members of the University of North Texas: Raquel Samayoa, Stacie Mickens, and Natalie Mannix. Excited for this new opportunity to collaborate, they have presented recitals at venues such as the 2019 International Women’s Brass Conference (IWBC) and performed as featured soloists with the UNT Wind Symphony. They are also excited to have been selected as the co-hosts of IWBC in May 2021. These renowned performers and pedagogues are also active in expanding the repertoire for brass trio and championing the works of women composers.

Watch the Lantana Trio perform Robert Linn's "Concertino" for Brass Trio with Wind Ensemble.
