Member News

San Diego Flute Guild Busness Member "That Other Label" has a new CD to announce with flutist Kris Palmer! As a rare ensemble dedicated to music for flute, cello, and guitar, Black Cedar creates, discovers, and re-imagines works for this unique combination. The trio’s accolades include grants from the Zellerbach Family Foundation and the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music, plus an invite to the National Flute Association Convention. Their recently released debut album, A Path Less Trod has earned critical praise, with Stephen Smoliar’s The Rehearsal Studio blog writing, “While the instrumentation is unconventional, it is surprisingly effective…Black Cedar is particularly effective for the rhetoric of intimacy they establish…an intimacy evident in the strategic command of understatement one encounters in the performances on this new album.”

Remember, if you are a member, we will post your news and events on our site, on Facebook, and in our newsletter!  Just send us an email at any time.
