Cellissimo is the advanced cello ensemble at the Western Springs School of Talent Education and Naperville Suzuki School in the Chicago suburbs. The group comprises twelve gifted young musicians in middle and high school. They have toured in Ontario and Quebec, and around the Midwest. In 2017 they recorded a debut CD and performed by special invitation that same year for 200 music teachers at the biennial leadership retreat for the Suzuki Association of the Americas. They bring their talents to Messiah Community Church in Denver at 7pm on March 28, 2019 and Community United Church of Christ in Boulder on March 29, 2019 at 6:30pm.
The program features a broad range of musical styles, including classical works by Massenet, Schubert, Verdi and others, as well as jazz and familiar pop favorites. The group plays entirely from memory and without a conductor!
Admission is free and open to the public. All ages welcome!
