Cellist Emily Taubl performs in Hinesburg May 20

The Hinesburg Artists Series presents its spring concert May 20 with guest cellist Emily Taubl in the Champlain Valley Union High School auditorium at 4:30 p.m.

The concert will feature the Hinesburg Community Band and the South County Chorus under the direction of Rufus Patrick. Its special guest artist will be cellist Emily Taubl and the program will also pay tribute to Leonard Bernstein who died in 1990 at age 72 and would have been 100 on August 25, this year.

Cellist Emily Taubl has attracted attention for her expressive playing and uncommon poise. She has been called “an outstanding cellist with a bright future” by the Hartford Courant.

She has appeared as a concerto soloist with the Hartford Symphony, Boston Virtuosi, Granite State Symphony, Nashua Chamber Orchestra, New England String Ensemble and the Juilliard PreCollege Symphony. She has been featured as a soloist at the Piatigorsky International Cello Festival in Los Angeles, on the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s Prelude Concert Series, and for The Colors of Claude Debussy: A 150th Birthday Celebration on Boston’s WGBH that was broadcast internationally.

Taubl studied at Juilliard, Yale School of Music, and the New England Conservatory. She currently lives in Burlington and teaches both privately and at the University of Vermont.

Selections by the community band will include: “Bandology” by Eric Osterling, “March” by Sergei Procofiev, and selections by Leonard Bernstein’s “West Side Story” musical.

Taubl will accompany the chorus on “Kyrie” by René Clausen, “Shall We Gather at the River” arr. by Jay Rouse, and “Take Care of This House” by Leonard Bernstein.

The concert is free with donations gratefully accepted.
