Enchanted 'Dream' By Renowned Cellist
Enchanted âDreamâ By Renowned Cellist
Â âMore beautiful than the human voice!â is the way Karen Lidman of Heritage Village describes the work by the renowned cellist Thirzah Bendokas.
Ms Bendokas will be offering a special concert on Friday, August 8, at 8 pm, in the open, airy and welcoming sanctuary of Newtown Congregational Church, 14 West Street. The concert is a benefit for Bob Veillette, a local journalist suffering from âlocked-inâ syndrome following a massive stroke.
The unusual cello concert will include a varied program that should appeal to all musical tastes. Included in the program will be selections from Ms Bedookasâ premiere CD, including âAmazing Grace,â William Squireâs Tarantella, and a special work from Disney.
Special guest artists, including a pianist, harpist, guitarist and violinist, will enhance the cello.Â
A special encore performance will be offered on Sunday, August 10, at 3 pm, at Milfordâs Historic Town Hall, 110 River Street in Milford.
Donations are welcomed for both concerts. Tickets may be reserved by calling Connecticut Classic Concerts at: 203-824-3612.
