Since 2013, the Gruca White Ensemble has been entertaining audiences with their creative programs featuring music from multiple cultures and genres. Comfortable with both written and improvised musical forms, classical guitarist Robert Gruca and flutist Linda White stretch the boundaries of the standard classical concert by including original arrangements of rock, funk, Latin tunes, and free improvisation. Impressing 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.” (Clevelandclassical.com, 2016). The Gruca White Ensemble presents multiple performances throughout the Cleveland area, and has been featured on WCLV’s “First Fridays” live radio broadcasts. Robert and Linda are both graduates of The Cleveland Institute of Music, holding Masters of Music degrees, and currently teach at The Music Settlement in Cleveland, Ohio.
