November 6, 2017 - Robbie Goodrich
NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Cello Club at Stephen F. Austin State University will present "Game of Cellos" at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, in Cole Concert Hall on the SFA campus as part of the School of Music's Calliope Concert Series.

The music will feature baroque and romanticism works as well as some arrangements from video games, pop songs and TV shows, according to Dr. Evgeni Raychev, cello instructor in the School of Music. The concert will also include the premieres of several works.

"Cello Club gathers together cello enthusiasts from near and far," Raychev said. "My college students and all other cellists who will be joining us on stage have been working hard to prepare the music. I cannot think of any other single instrument, other than the cello, which can create such wide diapason of sonorities, timbres and sound effects. It is truly amazing to listen to more than 20 cellos sounding together."

Works to be performed include those by J.S. Bach, Alfred Pester, Wilhelm Fitzenhagen, Johannes Brahms, Robert Eden, Alex Broussard, Codi Wartenbach and Obadiah Michler, and also music by The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and $3 for students and youth. For tickets or more information, call the SFA Fine Arts Box Office at (936) 468-6407 or visit http://www.finearts.sfasu.edu/.
