Denison University’s acclaimed Vail Series presents its 2019-20 season, celebrating the series' 40th Anniversary.
The Vail Series presents a Vail+ Event with cellist Matt Haimovitz presenting his brilliant musical variation on the concept of "A Moveable Feast." Haimovitz will perform "A Moveable Feast" in various locations around the Michael D. Eisner Center for the Performing Arts and campus from Nov. 19, through Nov. 21. Bach’s “Suites for Unaccompanied Cello” (1717-1723) are some of the most moving and spiritual compositions for a solo instrument in history. Each suite is a masterpiece on its own, but, in addition to the suites, overtures by Philip Glass, Du Yun, Vijay Iyer, and others are performed. Haimovitz joins the Denison Symphony Orchestra to complete the cycle, and performs Haydn’s Cello Concerto in C Major on Thursday, Nov. 21, in the Sharon Martin Hall of the Michael D. Eisner Center for the Performing Arts.
Free and open to the public, however tickets are required. Tickets available online through Vailseries.org.
