Evan Drachman, Cellist
- 7:00 pm
- $26 *includes service charge
Evan Drachman possesses in abundance two qualities for which
his grandfather, cellist Gregor Piatigorsky, was revered: the ability
to make the cello imitate the human singing voice and, even more
importantly, the ability to tell a story.
Born in Boston, Evan studied at the Peabody Conservatory of Music and the New England Conservatory of Music. Since graduating from the Curtis Institute of Music in 1998, Evan has appeared regularly as a soloist with orchestras, as well as giving recitals and chamber music performances across the United States. Internationally, he has performed in India, Great Britain, Sweden, Italy, and Canada. Evan even toured the Far East as soloist with the Chinese-American Symphony during recitals in Hong Kong and Macau.
For this performance, Evan will be accompanied by Victor Santiago Asuncion on the piano. Victor serves on the chamber music faculty of the Aspen Music Festival and School.
