Five Cellists

September 5, 2008

There are four local cello concerts coming up (one featuring two cellists) this month. A bonanza for cellists and non-cellists alike. Everyone loves the cello, or at least that is what they tell me when I mention that I play. I usually smile and agree that good cello playing is wonderful.

Once, though, as I was wandering through an art fair with a cello/case on my back, I just said, “thanks.” The cello-lover said, “I didn’t necessarily mean you, personally.” (He hadn’t yet heard me play, but it was a little disconcerting, nevertheless.)

If you also love the sound of the cello, you may want to attend one or more of these events:

Improvisational cellist Eugene Friesen will play with his jazz trio, Tre Corda, at Highfield Hall in Falmouth, on September 14 at 4 PM.

Bo Ericsson and Elizabeth Schultze, husband-and-wife cellists, will play at the Cape Cod Conservatory in West Barnstable on September 19 at 5:30 PM.

Savely Schuster will play with pianist Sharon Mann on September 26 at Falmouth Academy.

And Denise Djokic will play with the Cape Symphony Orchestra in Hyannis on September 27 at 8 PM and September 28 at 3 PM.
