Pacific Arts Trio
The lush sounds of flute, harp and cello have inspired many colorful arrangements and some original compositions that make up the repertoire of the Pacific Arts Trio. Alice Lenaghan (flute), Natalie Cox (harp), and Dan Reiter (cello) are each principals with the Oakland Symphony. The trio performs standard classical chamber music arranged for the group by Dan as well as his original compositions which often include exotic elements, textures and improvisations influenced by  music traditions from the Middle East and Asia. The Pacific Arts Trio regularly performs recitals across northern California, and has toured Alaska and the American Southwest.
