NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The Cello Club will present “Abiding Melodies – Harry Potter Listening to Elgar” when the collaborative group of cellists from throughout East Texas performs at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6, in Cole Concert Hall on the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University.

An endeavor begun in 2014 by Dr. Evgeni Raychev, cello instructor in the SFA School of Music, Cello Club has brought together up to 40 cellists at a time to collaborate on various themed concerts.

“After a long interval of pandemic reflection, Cello Club will meet again on the beautiful campus of Stephen F. Austin State University for yet another memorable performance,” Raychev said. “Cellists from near and far will collaborate together to create meaningful music with the abiding melodies of Sir Edward Elgar’s cello concerto.”

In addition to Elgar’s Cello Concerto in E minor, the English-themed program will feature musical highlights from Vaughn Williams’ Concerto Grosso, John Williams’ “Harry Potter” music, Max Richter’s “On the Nature of Daylight” and Thomas Tallis’ “Lamentation of Jeremiah.”
