Cellist Lynn Harrell to play at WWU Saturday
Cellist Lynn Harrell will play in the Performing Arts Center Saturday at Western Washington University as part of the Bellingham Festival of Music.
Harrell is a frequent guest of many leading orchestras, including Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Ottawa, Pittsburgh, and the National Symphony. In Europe he partners with the orchestras of London, Munich, Berlin, Tonhalle and Israel. He has also toured extensively to Australia and New Zealand as well as the Far East, including Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan and Hong Kong. In the summer of 1999, Harrell was featured in a three-week "Lynn Harrell Cello Festival" with the Hong Kong Philharmonic. He regularly collaborates with such noted conductors as James Levine, Sir Neville Marriner, Kurt Masur, Zubin Mehta, Andre Previn, Sir Simon Rattle, Leonard Slatkin, Yuri Temirkanov, Michael Tilson Thomas and David Zinman.
The Bellingham Festival of Music is one of America's premier virtuoso orchestra festivals. Each summer, the festival returns to Bellingham to perform a repertoire of the finest symphonic music. Members of the orchestra all hold artistically prestigious positions elsewhere, and many of them are principal players in major North American symphony orchestras. The festival also features world famous guest artists and young rising stars.
