Trio 180 Trio 180 (formerly New Pacific Trio), in residence at the University of the Pacific Conservatory of Music, is quickly gaining recognition throughout the United States. This talented ensemble is made up of celebrated concert violinist Ann Miller, Grammy-nominated cellist Nina Flyer and award-winning pianist Sonia Leong.

The trio has given concerts and master classes throughout the West Coast, with a featured appearance in Guadalajara in March 2009. An active advocate of new music, the trio was awarded a Barlow Grant in 2006 to commission eminent composer Chen Yi's first piano trio, Tibetan Tunes, published by Theodore Presser. In addition, the trio has premiered works by Allan Crossman (Icarus), Jorge Liderman (Suite del Sur; Sidewalk recorded on Albany Records), Derek Jacoby (Trio No. 2), Francois Rose (Gently, Wild Rose Petals), Cindy Cox, UC Berkeley (Wave, recorded in summer, 2010) and has performed frequently on the Composers, Inc. series in San Francisco.

The 2012 season brought the celebration of Trio 180's tenth anniversary, with a gala concert featuring the world premiere of Gothic Sea by Reinaldo Moya, commissioned for the occasion.

Performances in 2012-13 include appearances on Pacific's Resident Artist Series, a concert at the Mondavi Center at UC Davis, and a residency at San Francisco's Old First Concerts, in which the group will present trios of Felix Mendelssohn, Clara Schumann, and Robert Schumann, as well as interactive lectures entitled "Inside the Piano Trio." In addition, noted Bay Area composer Robert Greenberg has agreed to write a new work for Trio 180, to be premiered in the 2013-14 season.
