The Saros Trio is an ensemble dedicated to exploring the vast range of works for clarinet, violin, and piano. Mickayla Chapman (clarinet), Chase Ward (violin), and Shane McFadden (piano) founded the group in 2017 during their graduate studies at the University of Michigan. The Saros Trio made their competitive debut at the 2018 Briggs Chamber Music Competition, where they won second prize. For their performance of sb3 by Corey Dundee, they won an additional prize for the best performance of a piece by a University of Michigan composer. 

Clarinetist Mickayla Chapman is an active freelance musician and teacher throughout southeast Michigan who specializes in chamber music. In addition to being a founding member of the Saros Trio, she is also a member of the award-winning Vanguard Reed Quintet (www.vanguardrq.com). Outside of performing, Mickayla promotes access to music education as a coordinator of Detroit Symphony Orchestraís Civic Youth Ensembles and educational programs. 

Hailing from Oklahoma City, violinist Chase Ward performs with the Lansing Symphony, Flint Symphony, and Toledo Symphony Orchestras and teaches with the Sphinx Organizationís Overture Program. An advocate for representation in classical music, he is currently working to compile a volume of beginning violin pieces by composers of Iranian, Parsi, and Indian descent. 

As a musician equally passionate about vocal and chamber music, collaborative pianist Shane McFadden is an active performer in Chicago and across the United States. His most recent engagements include collaborations with the Atlantic Music Festival, Collaborative Arts Institute of Chicago, Evanston Chamber Opera, and Fourth Coast Ensemble.  Shane is an accompanist and vocal coach at the Chicago College of Performing Arts and DePaul University
