    FuruyaSistersTrio.jpgThe Furuya Sisters Trio performed at the White House this last December, and were thanked by Michelle Obama, who wrote "The President and I are so grateful for your wonderful performance."  The great Hungarian pianist Gyorgi Sandor praised their "superior talent".  Among those who have admired them are actresses Joan Fontaine, Olivia de Havilland, and Rhonda Fleming.  Cellist Mimi Furuya has won numerous awards.  She is also a composer, whose work has been performed by the Juilliard Orchestra and the American Brass Quintet.  Pianist Sakiko Furuya has performed at Alice Tully Hall, Weill Hall, and Merkin Hall in New York, and was a winner of the Gina Bachauer Competition at Juilliard.  Violinist Harumi Furuya '95 PhD '06 has performed at, among others, Alice Tully Hall and Prague's Dvorak Hall.
