Boise Cello Collective Special Needs Concert

Friday, Nov. 6

by

Musicians know the cello as a versatile and resonant instrument. It occupies a commanding position in any orchestra. For the public, it's the instrument that plays the Game of Thrones theme—a song so awesome it rocketed the cello to near-electric-guitar levels of acclaim. It's the cello's tonal breadth that will make possible a sensory-friendly/special needs concert for local schools by the Boise Cello Collective Friday, Nov. 6, at 1 p.m. at College of Idaho. The 45-minute program includes an original composition, On Poems by Shel Silverstein, as well as pieces by George Gershwin and The Beatles. For general audiences, BCC will perform from its vast repertoire of classical and contemporary pieces at 7 p.m.
