Prague Chamber Orchestra with the Eroica Trio take the stage together in an all-Beethoven program at the Center for the Arts Concert Hall on Sunday at 4 p.m. An artistic discussion is held prior to the curtain on the hall’s Grand Tier at 7:15 p.m.

The Eroica Trio has performed together for more than a decade. Pianist Erika Nickrenz, Adela Peña on violin, and cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio are at the forefront of a generation of musicians that is changing the face of classical music and breaking down age-old gender barriers. A half-century ago, the 36-member Prague Chamber Orchestra made a name for itself by performing without a conductor, which requires a unique rapport between all orchestra members.

The Prague Chamber Orchestra features 12 violins, 4 violas, 4 violoncellos, and 2 basses, supplemented with flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, French horns, trumpets, and tympani.

Tickets are $48, $40, and $24. Charge by phone at (703) 218-6500 or visit
