Ancora Trio will focus on the music of several living composers.  The trio had the unique experience of communicating directly with the composers. This allowed them the opportunity to ascertain their motivations for the compositions they will perform at the concert, which will be discussed with the audience.

Tuolumne and Calaveras symphony musicians, June Diggle, Alice Williams and Janet Telford formed Ancora Trio for the pleasure of playing great music from the classical and standard popular music repertoire. Noted for presenting special music in special places, this feminine trio collaborates in the planning for each performance to assure the perfect ambience and atmosphere. Each musician brings a wealth of experience to the picture.

Ancora Trio—Two Flutes and a Cello Feminine Ensemble:

Flautist, June Diggle holds a Bachelor of Music from SDSU, graduating with Honors and Distinction. She began private study of the flute in 4th grade. Among her many teachers have been Roger Stevens, Principal Flautist for the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and Luella Howard, Principal Flautist for Twentieth-Century Fox Studios.

Flautist, Janet Telford of Soulsbyville holds degrees in music from San Francisco State and Penn State Universities. She is the former Executive Director of the Sonora Bach Festival, founder of the San Jose Chamber Music Society, and former co-editor of Music for the Love of It, a newsletter for amateur musicians. She maintains an active private music teaching studio.

Cellist, Alice Williams is a transplant from Atlanta, GA who has been living in Murphys for the past 10 years. She was on the faculty of the Georgia Academy of Music for 35 years and has played with the Bear Valley Music Festival for 25 years. Alice continues to perform regularly with the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra.

The Trio will explore the range of the flute family: the C flute, piccolo and alto flute. The group originally employed two C flutes, but unique challenges with two same-sounding instruments quickly surfaced.  “We found that we wanted to broaden the spectrum and timbre of sound created by the two flutes”, said Ms. Diggle.  The alto flute is longer and wider than the standard C flute with a warm, ethereal sound that provides the deeper, lower tones of the trio. The piccolo is a much smaller instrument than the C flute and provides the brilliant high tones that complete the full band-width of the trio’s sound.

From humorous contemporary composition to rhythmic Native American undertones to playful classical pieces and the traditional works of Haydn, Vivaldi, Bach and Gershwin’s Jazz favorite, Summertime, the trio has planned an enlightening, magical and soothing performance specially created for the Petroglyphe audience. We will be serving light appetizers and there will be wine tasting with Ayrael Vieux Winery from Douglas Flat. You won’t want to miss this incredible series finale!

Tickets are available for $25 presale and $27 on the day of the performance. Purchase tickets at Petroglyphe or give us a call at 209-286-1387. Seating is limited. For more information about concerts and art workshops please visit us online at
