Soprano Jackie Van Paepeghem, trumpeter Joan Haaland Paddock and pianist/organist Debra Huddleston strive to elevate the mind and enlighten the soul of their audiences through engaging live performance of repertoire which spans a millennium of art music. Professionals also dedicated to the education of their audiences, they have succeeded in creating a renewed interest among United States and Canadian composers for works using this traditional 17th century instrumentation, resulting in several commissioned works.

Halcyon Trio Oregon has presented Master Classes in conjunction with concerts at institutes of higher learning in Oregon, California and Virginia. Community Concert Series appearances include the Ewell Concert Series at the College of William & Mary in Virginia, the Windsor Hall Concert Series in Cumberland, Maryland, and the Fine Arts At Faith Concert Series in Redmond, Washington.
