Allégresse was in residency at the University of Costa Rica from March 15-19. The trio members taught intensive master classes for university students each day and ended the week with a recital at the Sala Maria Clara Cullell at the Escuela de Artes Musicales, Universidad de Costa Rica.

Joined by KU alumnus Isabel Jeremias who is the professor of bassoon at the UCR, “Allégresse Plus One” performed world premieres of three new works. Allégresse commissioned the work Live Wire by Anne Guzzo and Cuando me acuerdo de ti by Vinicio Meza for flute, oboe, bassoon and piano to commemorate the nearly 60-year partnership between the University of Kansas and the Universidad de Costa Rica. Cathedral Grove for solo oboe by KU composition professor Forrest Pierce received its world premiere.
