The Argot Trio
featuring Jonathan Holden, clarinet, Caroline Holden, violin, and Lois Leventhal, piano, showcases the unique voice of the violin-clarinet-piano trio, and takes its name from that aesthetic: Argot, a vocabulary that is unique to one group.

He has received degrees from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where he studied with Dame Thea King, and Michigan State University in the studio of Dr. Elsa Verdehr. Caroline Holden, violin, also trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and has studied with Mihai Craiozeanu, Yfrah Neaman, and Walter Verdehr. Currently, Ms. Holden performs in with the Grand Rapids, West Michigan, and Mississippi Symphonies, as well as the Louisiana Philharmonic. Dr. Lois Leventhal received her doctorate of music at Indiana University and is a Professor of Music at the University of Southern Mississippi.
