Birdfoot Festival presents: 桜 SAKURA in Concert
March 3 at 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Birdfoot is excited to welcome the unique and versatile cello quintet 桜 SAKURA for its 2018 Spring Artist Residency.
Showcasing the great warmth and scope offered by the sound of five cellos, 桜 SAKURA’s repertoire includes a set of Renaissance a cappella works ranging from the vulgar to the sublime, Debussy’s evocative piano preludes, Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise, and selections from Leonard Bernstein’s enduring West Side Story, and more! This engaging ensemble, joined by Birdfoot’s Artistic Director Jenna Sherry, will delve deeply into Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony in the latest edition of the popular Birdfoot Backstage series and will close out their residency with a dazzling and eclectic program of works spanning five centuries.
