Friends Announce Baroque Cello and Piano Concert
As part of the Sunday Afternoons at Goodnow Cultural Series, the Friends of the Goodnow Library are pleased to announce that the November program will be a Baroque Cello and Piano Concert performed by cellist Nick Dinnerstein and pianist Paul Jacobs. The program will feature works by Bach and Vivaldi.
The concert will take place on Sunday, November 24, 2019, at 3 PM in the Community Meeting Room of the Goodnow Library , 21 Concord Road, Sudbury. It is free and open to the public.
Nick Dinnerstein is a cellist who connects deeply with audiences through imaginative, original, and expressive performances. His career weaves threads through classical and popular music – and his original compositions express themselves by exploring and blending the two. He has had a wide range of musical experience, including performing on baroque cello, recording with songwriters, and playing both traditional and new classical music. He is also a dedicated teacher. Nick is currently based in New York City.
Boston based pianist, Paul Jacobs, has performed across the U.S. as a soloist and chamber musician in a variety of venues including Bruno Walter Auditorium at Lincoln Center; Queens Library, NY; The Art Complex Museum, Duxbury, MA; and The Lilypad, Cambridge, MA. Mr. Jacobs is also a member of the Thoreau Piano Trio. Past residencies include the Warebrook Contemporary Music Festival in Vermont and The White Lake Chamber Music Festival in West Michigan.
Please join the Friends of the Goodnow Library for this wonderful afternoon of classical music. For more information about the Friends, please go to www.friendsofgoodnow.org or follow the Friends on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
