The Kende Trio
The Kende Trio performs classical and contemporary music at weddings, corporate functions, holiday parties, anniversary celebrations, bar and bat mitzvahs. The ensemble was established in 1995 by Alexis and her two sisters, who all attended Juilliard and Princeton University. Lauded by Distinction Magazine for their “impassioned performances and infectious personal appeal”, The Kende Trio exemplifies the “ideal blend of virtuosity and group integration”. The trio has also been featured by the New York Times, WABC-TV News, and NBC-TV’s “Today Show”.
In 2010, The Kende Trio expanded to include a larger network of professional musicians who specialize in vocals, harp, trumpet, flute, bass, piano, and more. In this way, the ensemble offers a greater variety of musical styles, ranging from classical, to jazz, to contemporary.
All musicians affiliated with The Kende Trio are established professionals with extensive experience performing at high-profile events. Prominent venue appearances include The Plaza, Tavern On The Green, Greenwich Polo Club, Oheka Castle, Bruce Museum, Mohonk Mountain House, Old Westbury Gardens, Wolffer Estate Vineyard, Gramercy Park Hotel, and various private clubs in the greater Metropolitan area.

“Alexis was extremely communicative and easy to work with; she was the line of communication with our church organist, whom The Kende Trio collaborated with seamlessly. I am so thrilled that we booked The Kende Trio and would recommend them to everybody! Their music was such a wonderful and memorable addition to our ceremony - I can’t wait to watch our wedding video so that I can hear everything back again.”
"We were absolutely thrilled to have The Kende Trio play at our daughter’s wedding at The Plaza last month. The music was just superb and everything was perfect; the transitions from the Terrace ceremony, to the cocktail hour, to the reception in the grand ballroom, were magical. Also, the musicians are all so lovely!! I hope we are fortunate enough to have another occasion to celebrate with the privilege of having The Kende Trio perform."
“I could not get over how beautiful they all sounded as well as my love for their amazing instrumental music. Working with Alexis was the best -- she could not have been more accommodating and helpful in providing suggestions where and when needed. Truly the best!”
“The Kende Trio provided beautiful music for my Catholic wedding ceremony. They helped me select appropriate music that really made my wedding elegant. I felt like a princess walking down the aisle. The musicians are all classically trained at Juilliard, and play difficult pieces of music with such ease. Many of my guests commented on the quality of the ceremony music and I would recommend them to anyone.”
