Euclid Symphony to Host Cello Soloist
Cellist Gayle Klaber will be a featured perofrmer in the first Euclid Symphony Orchestra concert of the 2017-2018 season.
Klaber, a cello instructor at Baldwin Wallace University Community Music School, will perform Kol Nidrei by Max Bruch during the ESO's fall classical concert at 3 p.m. on Oct. 29 At the Shore Cultural Centre. The piece is named for a Jewish prayer often performed by a cantor during Yom Kippur services.
Klaber, who holds a degree in cello performance from the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, called the Kol Nidrei a meditation.
“It‘s Always just what I need,” she said. “It calms, it soothes, it‘s Meditation without having to meditate.”
Klaber said she looks forward to working with Conductor Matthew Salvaggio, who took over as Music Director for the 2017-2018 Season. The performance will be his first as director.
”Matt is a wonderful conductor,” she said. “You always make the best music with the ones you love.”
The orchestra will also perform the Academic Festival Overture, by Johannes Brahms, Suite from Tannhauser by Richard Wagner, and an English Folk Song Suite by Vaughan Williams.
Season tickets and single concert tickets are available online at EuclidSymphonyOrchestra.com for $8. Tickets will also be available at the door for $10 on the day of the show. The Shore Cultural Centre is at 291 E. 222nd St. Euclid, OH 44123.
