OAK RIDGE, TN – The Cumberland Piano Trio will be performing in Oak Ridge on Saturday, January 21. Presented by the Oak Ridge Civic Music Association the group will be at the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church at 7:00 p.m.

Established in 2013 as an outgrowth of the Association’s Isotone series, the Cumberland Piano Trio has become well-known for championing the works of 21st century composers. The Trio made their New York recital debut at Symphony Space with Isotone in May 2016.

The trio includes violinist Susan Eddlemon, cellist Dan Allcott, and pianist Emi Kagawa.

A graduate of The Juilliard School in New York City, Susan Eddlemon was the first female violinist to receive a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Juilliard. Eddlemon has performed and taught violin in Knoxville and Oak Ridge for over twenty years, and she is a member of the Oak Ridge Symphony Orchestra.

Dan Allcott attended the prestigious Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, where he was the first student to be accepted simultaneously to the doctoral program in both cello and conducting. He is well-known to East Tennessee audiences as the Music Director for the Oak Ridge Symphony Orchestra.

A soloist and chamber musician who has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Italy, and Japan, Emi Kagawa has won numerous national and international competitions, including the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition at Juilliard and the Nancy Clark International Piano Competition.

The concert will feature Gabriel Faure’s Piano Trio in D minor and Johannes Brahms’ Piano Trio No. 1 in B major.
