Bermuda Philharmonic concert on Sunday

People are invited to hear local and overseas musicians play Haydn, Bach, Gluck and Bartok on Sunday.

Cellist Kate Kayaian, who will solo during Haydn’s Cello Concerto No 1, said: “Haydn’s beautiful and thrilling Cello Concerto in C Major has always been one of my favourite pieces to play.

“I am thrilled to be able to perform it here in my newly adopted hometown of Bermuda, and to join forces with the formidable Bermuda Philharmonic.

“I’m very much looking forward to introducing this piece to our audience and hope that it will inspire more kids to learn the cello.”

Other Spring Prelude pieces include Johann Sebastian Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No 3, Béla Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances and the Overture from Christoph Willibald Gluck’s Opera, Orfeo y Euridice.

The concert, led by Bermuda-based violinist Alison Black, will take place at 4.30pm in St John’s Church, Pembroke, on Sunday.

Tickets cost $30 ($15 for students and seniors) and are available at PTix or on the door.
