A quartet of cellists from diverse cultural backgrounds will perform together in Fayetteville next week.
Galvin Cello Quartet, composed of members from from China, Brazil, South Korea and the United States, will perform at Walton Arts Center at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 7 pm.
From the group’s bio:
Comprised of members from China, Brazil, South Korea, and the United States, Galvin Cello Quartet burst onto the scene after capturing the silver medal at the 2021 Fischoff Competition, followed shortly by winning the 2022 Victor Elmaleh Competition and joining the Concert Artists Guild roster. Cellists Sihao He, Sydney Lee, Haddon Kay, and Luiz Fernando Venturelli met as students at Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music in the studio of acclaimed pedagogue Hans Jørgen Jensen. Named after the Mary B. Galvin Recital Hall at Bienen, the Galvin Cello Quartet began during the height of the pandemic. Its story is a testament to the power of teamwork and exceeds all expectations of traditional chamber music.
The show is part of the arts center’s 10 x 10 Arts Series, meaning tickets to the show are just $10.
