Whatcom Museum Presents Cellist Colin Carr in Concert
Celebrate the Whatcom Museum's 75th anniversary year with a special cello concert performance by internationally-renowned English cellist Colin Carr, Monday, September 19, 7-9pm (doors at 6pm) in the Rotunda Room of Old City Hall. One of the premier cellists in the world, Carr performs in cello festivals all over the globe (Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Winnipeg), as well as concertizing in Europe, Asia, Canada, and the US. He teaches at Stony Brook University and teaches master classes at Banff, among many other places. This will be his first performance in Bellinghama wonderful opportunity to experience world-class music in our own backyard!
Carr will perform solo cello suites by Johann Sebastian Bach and Benjamin Britten. The Bach suites are the pinnacle of music composed for cello, and Carr's performances are regarded by critics as superb. The Britten suites were composed as political and artistic gifts of cross-border friendship at a time of dangerous political hardship for musicians in Russia. They are technically challenging and soul-wrenchingly deep.
The Whatcom Museum is presenting the concert in partnership with the Bellingham Festival of Music, presenting sponsor, as well as generous members of the community, and the Bellingham Music Club.
The Whatcom Museum is located in the cultural arts district of downtown Bellingham and is celebrating 75 years of bringing art, nature, and Northwest history to the community. The museum offers a rich variety of programs and exhibitions, and is accredited nationally by the American Association of Museums, and is a Smithsonian Affiliate.
