3Celli Benefit Concerts with Blacksburg Refugee Partnership
3Celli (Eleanore, Lisa, and Miriam Liske-Doorandish) will perform at the Floyd Presbyterian Church on July 27th at 7:00PM. The concert is in part a benefit for the Blacksburg Refugee Partnerships. The three cellists will present an hour-long program of music for cello solo and ensemble, ranging from Renaissance and Baroque to Romantic to 21st century to international traditional music. Audiences in Floyd and Blacksburg will have a chance to enjoy the great sound of the cello in some of its many roles, from its origins as a Renaissance and Baroque bass instrument through its exciting genesis as a solo voice during the centuries since then. The musicians have a fundraising goal of $4,000. Half of the proceeds from donations at the door will go to Blacksburg Refugee Partnership, the other half toward Miriam’s travel to Prussia Cove [England] Open Chamber Music. There she will have an opportunity to further her development as an artist and make connections with other like-minded young musicians from around the world. Once the goal is reached, all further proceeds will go to the refugee partnership. The concert is free but donations will gladly be accepted.
