The Guest Artist Series at the School of Music hosts its final residency of the 2011-12 season with the Lincoln Trio, performing on Wednesday, April 11 at 7:30 p.m. in Morphy Hall.
Formed in 2003, the Lincoln Trio takes its name from its home, the heartland of the U. S., the "Land of Lincoln."
The trio's members -- violinist Desiree Ruhstrat, cellist David Cunliffe and pianist Marta Aznavooria -- are all artists of international renown, with performing and teaching careers in addition to their joint endeavors as a chamber ensemble.
The Lincoln Trio has performed at Carnegie Hall's Weill Hall, the Ravinia Festival, Indianapolis Beethoven Chamber Music Series, University of Chicago, Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series and Poisson Rouge, among many others.
In December 2011 the trio was chosen to celebrate the 60th anniversary of WFMT in Chicago and present a live world premiere broadcast from the Chicago Cultural Center.
