You may not imagine that you’ve heard cello music very often, but you’ve heard more than you think you have. From the cello choir that opens the famous “William Tell Overture” to the Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever,” the rich, deep sighing of the cello has added its distinctive voice to a variety of classical and popular melodies.
Come spend the afternoon of Saturday, November 5 at the Belle Isle Library, 5501 N. Villa, and enjoy a cello concert from 2:00 to 3:00p.m. A talented young man named Sam the Cellist will present a program that the whole family will enjoy.
“The Belle Isle Library,” said librarian Ann Meeks, “has become well known for the variety of our musical events, but we’ve never presented anyone quite like Sam the Cellist. His music is a delight, and so is he. You may come wondering who he is, but you’ll definitely be a fan when you leave.”
“An Afternoon Concert With Sam the Cellist” is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
