Gruca White Ensemble
Expanding the boundaries of the standard classical experience, the Gruca White Ensemble engages audiences with their creative programming and energetic performances. Featuring music from multiple cultures and genres, they seek out rarely-heard works from around the globe, foster their connections with local composers, and create unique renditions of rock, world, and Latin music. Classical guitarist Robert Gruca and flutist Linda White are comfortable with both written and improvised musical forms and draw from the entirety of their musical experiences, including rock bands, conservatory training, jazz studies, and new music. Robert’s dynamic and colorful tone is complemented by Linda’s versatility on a variety of flutes, including the alto and bass flute. The ensemble has earned rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. “The highlight of the evening was the set performed by flutist Linda White and guitarist Robert Gruca. Their performance of Chick Corea’s landmark composition “Spain” absolutely sparkled.” (Cleveland Classical, 2016). Their many performances include such diverse venues as live radio, chamber music series, educational institutions, and new music series. Their debut performance in 2013 was an hour-long live radio broadcast on WCLV (Cleveland), and they haven’t stopped since. grucawhiteensemble.com
