Presented by Strathmore

Music Center at Strathmore
At the heart of one of the world’s most revered orchestras is a stellar cadre of superb artists: 12 phenomenally gifted cellists. Playing together since 1972, they have spurred the development of a new repertoire for this rich, gloriously varied sound. Count yourself among their worldwide fan base in this performance that leaps from Bach, Mendelssohn, and Verdi to Gershwin, Duke Ellington and Elvis Presley. “If there is such a thing as Nirvana, these musicians will make their way there” (London Times).
