Cleveland's Almeda Trio to Perform 10/24/2013 at Goodwin Hall

Cellist Ida Mercer, pianist Robert Cassidy and violinist
Cara Tweed make up the Almeda Trio.

On October 24, 2013, at 7:30 pm, at Auburn University's Goodwin Hall, the Almeda Trio ( from Cleveland will perform the first concert of the 2013-4 season of the Auburn Chamber Music Society. Formed in 2008, Almeda is in residence at The Music Settlement in Cleveland, whose founder, social activist Almeda Adams, is the trio's namesake. Its instrumentation is the traditional violin, cello and piano.

The Auburn Chamber Music Society does not have a website, but here is a link to a PDF of this season's brochure which includes concerts in February and March, 2014. Below is a blurb about Thursday's concert from president Virginia Transue, who will happily tell you anything more you need to know about the concert if you call her at (334) 887-9379.

UPDATE (10/22/2013): I just did another post about this performance with a link to an oanow article and some embedded audio.


The Almeda Trio will play in Auburn this coming Thursday evening at Goodwin Hall on AU Campus, 7:30 pm. A shuttle will commence running at 6:30 pm from the parking lot at the corner of S. College and Samford. AU Music Department Chair Sara Lynn Baird warns that concerts are selling out this year, so be sure to come early to get a seat. The program will be unusual and particularly beautiful: Bedřich Smetana's Trio in G minor, Sergei Rachmaninoff's Trio Elegiaque, Joaquin Turina's Circulo, and Joseph Haydn's Gypsy Rondo.

This opens the FORTY NINTH season of THE AUBURN CHAMBER MUSIC SOCIETY. It has been a splendid half-century of bringing some of the biggest dogs of the genre to Auburn. Not a day goes by that I don't hear on NPR at least one group we have hosted. Season tickets are available now for $65, general admission to the concert is $25, college students $10, younger students free. Again, get there early!
