Chicago's own Grammy-nominated chamber ensemble, the Lincoln Trio, will present a live concert of Spanish music at the Merit School of Music on Sunday, January 19, 2014 at 3 p.m. This concert, entitled Turina & Sangria!, will feature music by Joaquin Turina followed by a wine and cheese reception.

The works on this performance will include Turina's Trio in F Major (1904), Trio in B minor Op.76 (1933) and Circulo Op.91 fantasy for violin, cello and piano (1936). Joaquin Turina was a 20th century Spanish composer who strived to promote the national character of his native country's music. The Lincoln Trio (Marta Aznavoorian, piano; David Cunliffe, cello; and Desiree Ruhstrat, violin), will be recording Turina's complete works for piano and strings for Cedille Records later this year.

The Lincoln Trio is the Merit School's first-ever Artists in Residence. The January 19 performance is the second of four public concerts Lincoln Trio will perform at the Merit School as part of the ensemble's 2013-2014 residency. Other recitals at the school will include an appearance on the WFMT 98.7 FM radio show Relevant Tones on Saturday, April 19, 2014 and a recital of music by Armenian composers on Sunday, June 8 at 3 p.m.

Turina & Sangria! will take place in the Anne and Howard Gottleib Hall at Merit School of Music, 38 S. Peoria Street. Tickets are $10 for general admission seating and may be purchased at
