The Deseret Piano Trio, composed of Brigham Young University School of Music faculty members, will perform Thursday, Feb. 16, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

Bevan performed with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and was the principal cellist of the Chicago String Ensemble for 15 seasons. She performed with other orchestras as well, including Storioni Ensemble and the Ars Viva Orchestra in Chicago.
