This Saturday, May 7th, The Aspen String Trio and flutist, Eugenia Molier, will give a concert at 7:30pm at Pollard Auditorium in Oak Ridge. This world-renowned ensemble has been performing together for 20 years and will present works by Mozart, Beethoven, Rossini, Richard Strauss, and Gideon Klein.

Morning Concert host, Melony Dodson, chats with the cellist of the group, Michael Mermagen. They discuss the founding of the group, their collaboration with Eugenia Moliner, and have an in-depth conversation about the music that they are presenting on the program.

Melony calls the beautiful mountains of Boone, N.C., home, although she was born near Greensboro, N.C. There’s just something about those Blue Ridge Mountains that got in her blood and never left after she moved there to attend Appalachian State University (ASU). While at ASU, she majored in piano performance and music therapy and began to cultivate a love for accompanying and for collaborating with other musicians. This soon led her to earn a master’s degree in collaborative piano at the University of Tennessee, which she attended from 2006-2008.
