Cello concert POST

On Saturday March 28th at 7:30 p.m. the First Presbyterian Church of Yorktown’s 2015 Concert Series will present virtuoso international artists Andre Tchekmazov, cellist, and Simona Fenkel, pianist. Mr. Tchekmazov is hailed by the Washington Post as an “extraordinary musician.” He was the Grand Prize winner of the Vittorio Gui International Chamber Music Competition and the Premio Trio di Trieste. He has performed extensively throughout North and South America, Europe, Russia, and Asia, appearing at the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory, Osaka Symphony Hall in Japan, New York’s Alice Tully Hall, and Brazil’s Sala Cecilia Mereles with orchestras such as the Sao Paolo Symphony, the Moscow Chamber Orchestra, the Kiev Philharmonic, and the Teatro Alfa Symphony. The concert will feature well-beloved cello pieces including the Bach/Gounod Ave Maria, Schumann’s Fastasiestucke, Tchaikovsky’s Nocturn for cello, and other classical romantic works by Rachmaninoff and Rimsky-Korsakov. This beautiful late-winter evening concert will be held in the historic candlelit sanctuary at 2880 Crompond Road, Yorktown. A reception will follow in Fellowship Hall, and a donation is suggested to help support the concert series.
