The Black Cedar Trio brings their unique combo of chamber music for flute, cello, and guitar to the San Francisco Public Library.

Bay Area composer Andre Gueziec’s In The Spring is an introspective and intimate dance in irregular mixed meters and canonic forms. Gueziec’s technical approach to composing music may reveal his former life as a Silicon Valley software engineer, publisher, and patented inventor. Yet, the piece’s character reflects Gueziec’s penchant for performing on five-string banjos at farmers markets and outdoor fairs in his bluegrass band.

The Black Cedar Trio commissioned and premiered In The Spring in 2018, and they combine it with Bach’s Trio Sonata in C Minor from Musical Offering, BWV 1079, plus Astor Piazzolla’s Oblivion – a favorite long song by this Argentinean tango master – along with the Black Cedar Trio’s own  rendition of music from the Movie, La La Land.

San Francisco Classical Voice says, "Black Cedar forges a new repertoire with flair. They are not only willing but also quite capable of pursuing ‘a Path Less Trod.' Audiences will be fortunate for the opportunity to hear live performances as these three musicians pave their own unique road." With Kris Palmer on flute, Isaac Pastor-Chermak on cello, and Steven Lin on guitar, the Black Cedar Trio is the recipient of multiple grants from InterMusic SF and the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
