First Pres Music Series presents: Black Oak Trio with Eugenia Moliner, Flute
November 13 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Black Oak Ensemble took root in 2011 when they performed for a standing-room-only audience on Chicago’s prestigious Music in the Loft Series. Since then, they have gone on to perform for major venues in the United States and Europe. The ensemble was named for the black oak, a beautiful tree native to their home state of Illinois (one stands in the front yard of founding members Desirée Ruhstrat and David Cunliffe). Members include Desirée Ruhstrat, Violin; Aurelien Pederzoli, Viola and David Cunliffe, Cello. They will be joined by eminent flautist, Eugenia Moliner who has performed extensively nationally and internationally and whose recordings have been aired far and wide.
