Charu Suri

Formed in the spring of 2018, the trio consists of Charu Suri on the piano, J. Brunka on the double bass, and Jay O'Brien on the drums. The ensemble has received praise for its renditions of standards and original music. Its debut album, “Lollipops for Breakfast,” with original music composed by Suri, debuts soon.

Charu Suri has been playing the piano since the age of five, and won an international piano competition at the age of 15. She has a Piano Performance certificate from Princeton University, where she received her undergraduate degree, and a Master’s in Music from the Manhattan School of Music.

Her piece for chamber orchestra, “The Shield of Achilles” was performed by the Princeton University Chamber Ensemble. As part of an atelier workshop with Toni Morrison at Princeton, two of her original pieces were performed by a chamber ensemble, along with cellist Yo-Yo Ma and double bass player Edgar Meyer.
