Black Cedar Trio performs June 5, 2016

We are pleased to host the Black Cedar Trio at the Main Library in the Koret Auditorium on Sunday, June 5th from 2-4 PM.

Black Cedar is the winner of a 2014 Musical Grant from San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music and an affiliate ensemble with San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music. It is the only ensemble entirely devoted to creating, discovering, and re-imagining chamber music for guitar, cello, and wood flute or alto flute. With this unique mix of sonorities, Black Cedar brings to life Renaissance lute songs and dances, Baroque trio sonatas, Classical and Romantic-era salon pieces, Appalachian folk music, and modern works from living composers.  With generous support from the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
