Chamber music ensemble Trio de Llano to perform at WCU

Written by 

A free guest artist concert beginning at 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 4, at Western Carolina University Coulter Building recital hall will feature The Trio de Llano, a chamber music ensemble based at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, La.

The Trio de Llano features Dennette McDermott on flute, Malena McLaren on clarinet and Douglas Bakenhus on bassoon. The ensemble was founded in August 2004 in an effort to promote and actively perform the unique chamber music repertoire for this often overlooked combination of instruments, said Eldred Spell, professor of flute at WCU.

Each member of Trio de Llano is a full-time faculty member at Northwestern State University. Past performances include recitals at the University of Texas at Austin, the University of North Texas, and the University of New Mexico. In addition, the trio has received grants to perform in the Slovak and Czech Republics; Victoria, British Columbia; Manchester, England; and the National Flute Association New York Convention.

For information contact WCU’s School of Music at 828.227.7242.
