cello de mayo

Monday, May 5th, 2014
Nichols Hall
1490 Chicago Avenue
Evanston, IL

Our season will conclude with an event featuring Latin-inspired music! Chicago cellists of all ages will perform works by Piazzolla, Villa-Lobos, de Falla, Albéniz, Mores, Matamoros, as well as Chicago-based composer, Marcos Balter.

Cellist extraordinaire Chris Wild will perform “Memoria,” a solo work by Balter featured on the newly-released album Abhanden.  Journalist, Ellen McSweeney of The Music Box, will host a live interview with both Balter and Wild.

Your ears will be dancing upon the sounds of seductive tangos performed by smaller cello ensembles and lively cello choir music conducted by Linc Smelser. After the concert, we will announce the winners of our raffle - tickets will be available at the door - and treat everyone to a traditional Cinco de Mayo reception hosted by Lawrence and Abby Block.  We hope you'll join us for the festivities!

The Chicago Cello Society would like to thank German Marcano for his assistance in helping organize this event all the way from Venezuela!
