Faculty Recital – Denise Djokic and Friends
This is a program of duos featuring the cello with a variety of duo partners. These partnerships demonstrate the versatility of the cello and the ability of the two instruments to embody different characters and sound worlds together. The repertoire on the program is diverse and represents different time periods, styles, and cultures. The audience will enjoy fun, dance-like rhythms, folk influences, moments of meditative reflection, as well as traditional western classical references.
