Trio Virado consists of flutist Amy Porter, violist Jaime Amador, and guitarist João Luiz, three of the most innovative artists on their respective instruments.

Representing a unique mosaic of culture through their repertoire and maintaining a sonority with uncommon resonance, “They present a set of performances that are unfailingly strong, expressive, and imaginative", says the American Record Guide.

Performing music from Bach to Piazzolla, they have given world premieres by composers Sérgio Assad, Fred Hand and David Sampson, and play original works and arrangements by Trio member João Luiz. They create community engagement programs for both children and adults, offering audiences a passion for teaching and showmanship that showcases their infectiously joyous personalities. The WholeNote magazine wrote, “Trio Virado’s musicianship is world class.”
