Eight Strings & a Whistle formed in 1998 as Suzanne Gilchrest (flute), Matt Goeke (cello) and Ina Litera (viola), performing new and contemporary works composed for the Trio’s unique combination of flute, viola and cello. Their intricate and musical playing allows for each work performed to be its own gem, highlighting its unique timbre and color.
In addition to contemporary works, the trio perform original repertoire from the Baroque period and works by established composers from Europe and North and South America dating from the mid-19th through the end of the 20th centuries.
ESW will be performing this coming Monday (4/28) in Eaton, CT. You can find out more about the trio and upcoming performances on their website: www.eightstringsandawhistle.com.
Keep an eye out for Matt, Suzanne, and Ina in the coming months and watch them live at the Tenri Institute below.
