Saturday, December 1, 2018 | 4:30pm | *Living Spirit Centre, 3018 Doan Drive, Regina
The Cecilian Chamber Series is pleased to present a landmark musical event of the Complete Cello Suites of Johann Sebastian Bach. Bach began composing these works over 300 years ago in 1717. Due to the works’ technical demands, the Cello Suites were little known and rarely publicly performed until they were revived and recorded by Pablo Casals in the early 20th century. They have since been
performed and recorded by many renowned cellists. They remain an enduring source of fascination, inspiration and consolation for students and professionals alike.
We invite you to experience the beauty and deep meaning of these important 17th century works performed by cellist Arnold Choi.
NOTE: This event will include two intermissions with food and drink provided.
