Cellists will perform

cellistsOn Sunday, March 30 at 3 p.m., international artist, cellist Emilio Colón puts his passionate stamp on the virtuoso Solo Cello Suites of J.S. Bach.

Colón will perform at Grace Lutheran Church, 517 N. Queen St., Lancaster.

In an interaction interpretation, Colón explores the grandeur, darkness and celebration of the 4th, 5th and 6th Suites, those left only to the most daring of cellists. In the second half of the program the cellist is joined by Murray Foreman, on the largest of all musical instruments, the organ, to perform the Prieré by the child prodigy and amateur archaeologist, Camille Saint-Saëns.

The program rises to a finale with Handel’s spritely and lyrical Sonata in G minor for Two violins. The sonata is repurposed in this concert for two cellos, a practice not unheard of in Handel’s time. Colón is joined by his wife and Ephrata native, Cara Elise Colón.

A free will offering will be accepted. To learn more, call 397-2748.
