Back by popular demand, the WMU cello quartet featuring Jordan Hamilton, Allyson Perez Monsanto, Adriana Fernandez Vizcaino, and I will be playing for Fontana Chamber Arts’ Crybaby concert series this Saturday, October 18th at 11:00 am at the Eastwood Branch Kalamazoo Public Library. This is a free 45-minute casual concert for families with children under age five. And this time, we have an official name.
If you were to walk into a delicatessen and found a string player buying something at the counter, it would most likely be a cellist. So many of my cellistic brothers and sisters have an appreciate for delicious food (I myself am partial to cold cuts and good wine). Maybe it is because of our rich repertoire of Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms. Or perhaps it is because cello is the most expensive instrument to buy, maintain, and repair (as compared to the violin, viola, and bass). Whatever the reason, fine food and fine music go hand in hand!
The menu, a smorgasbord of styles and time periods, will include:
G. P. Telemann
Johann Strauss Jr.
