GENEVA -- One of the great advantages of living in a college town is the fact that every once in a while world-class artists visit and offer locals access to the kind of music one usually must fight the crowds to see in New York or Toronto.
Tonight is one of those nights. Instead of sitting home and watching recreational politics on TV, you can visit the Gearan Center for the Arts and catch Elinor Frey turn her cello into a touch of magic.
A recent review in the Toronto Star included these remarks:
"Frey’s careful scholarship and brilliant layering of moods and tempos. . .make for a great program…She is one of a growing number of younger performers who can make period instrumental solos sizzle with the same heat as artists using modern instruments and bows.
— John Terauds, Toronto Star
The performance starts at 7:30 in Frolich Hall, in the Gearan Center, the first large building on your left when you enter the campus from the north via Pulteney Street. Parking is available adjacent to the center. Tickets are available at the door. $12 general admission. $10 for students and free with valid HWS student ID.
