Eminent Artist Lynn Harrell will perform with guest artists Saturday, Feb. 18, at 7:30 p.m. in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts recital hall. The event is free and open to the public.

Harrell will perform Bach’s Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 and Schubert’s “Cello Quintet.” He will perform with guest artists: UW Department of Music faculty members John Fadial and Beth Vanderborgh; Barbara Hamilton, a member of the Colorado Chambers Players; and Jennifer Ross, a member of the Pittsburgh Symphony.

Harrell, a California resident, is well-known throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia. He has been a guest of many leading orchestras in the U.S. including Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Pittsburgh and the National Symphony.

Harrell appeared, in 1994, at the Vatican with the Royal Philharmonic for the first concert dedicated to the memory of the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust. That same year, Harrell appeared at the Grammy Awards with Itzhak Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman.

He has taught at the Royal Academy in London; was an artistic director of the orchestra at the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute; served as head of the Royal Academy in London; and has given master classes at the Verbier and Aspen festivals and in major metropolitan areas throughout the world. Currently, he teaches cello at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music.

Dallas, Texas, is where Harrell began his musical studies. From there, he attended Julliard and the Curtis Institute of Music, where he received the first Avery Fisher Award.
