CONTRIBUTED CONTENT — Have you ever heard a choir of cellists perform together? The sound is powerful, sonorous and soulful.
Performing for one night only on Sept. 12, 2019, 20-plus talented cellists from the Cello Society of Southern Utah will come together to create a magical experience at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta.
Soloists Nicole Pinell and Brittany Gardner join them to perform Vivaldi’s masterwork “Double Cello Concerto in G Minor” and Karl Jenkins’ exquisite “Benedictus.”
“Benedictus,” from Welsh composer Jenkins’ work, “The Armed Man: A Mass For Peace,” is among his most famous creations. Often performed by amateur musicians, the unique arrangement has been called “one of the most beautiful” pieces of music.
The ensemble will play selections from Bach’s “Cello Suite No. 6,” Rachmaninoff’s “Vocalise,” Shostakovich’s “Waltz No. 2,” Villa-Lobos’ “Bachianas Brasileiras No. 1” and a mashup arrangement of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” with Schubert’s “Serenade.”
The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta located at 881 Coyote Gulch Court, Ivins.
