The Ahn Trio began performing publicly fifteen years ago in their native country, South Korea. The ensemble's first major appearance was a performance broadcast in 1980 on Korean National Television. With the support of various scholarships, the Ahn sisters came to the United States in 1981 to begin studying at the Juilliard School.
The Ahn Trio has since given numerous recitals throughout Europe and the Far East, as well as the United States, and has been a frequent guest of New York's Lincoln Center.
Members of the Trio have performed with such orchestras as the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Moscow Philharmonic, the New Jersey Symphony, the Little Society Orchestra at Lincoln Center, the Korean Broadcasting Orchestra, the Korean Symphony, and the Young Artists Orchestra.
The Trio has appeared in many major concert series including Chamber Music Concert Series at Alice Tully Hall, the "Juilliard Plus One" Series in Albany, New York, the Shoreline Series in Connecticut, and the Lehman College Chamber Music Concert Series.
Several contemporary composers have written work for the Trio. Most recently, the Trio premiered Eric Ewazen's Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano. In addition to their performance schedule, the Trio also gives workshops and master classes at various educational centers in North America. The Ahn Trio currently serves on the faculty of the Music at Maple Mount: A Summer Institute For Young Musicians in Indiana.
