BACH’S COMPLETE CELLO SUITES MARATHON… BY EMERALD CITY MUSIC

Emerald City Music is South Lake Union’s destination for vogue, eclectic, open-bar classical music shows. Top-flight musicians gather from every corner of the globe to perform on ECM’s stages! The six cello suites of Johann Sebastian Bach are considered the Baroque composer’s most iconic set of chamber music. However, performing them in one marathon session is a bold and challenging feat for any cellist. British cellist Colin Carr returns to the Emerald City Music stages to conclude the season with this marathon full-evening performance of Bach’s complete Cello Suites.

“a beacon for the casual-classical movement, presenting high-level musicians in an unstuffy environment.” – CityArts Magazine
“intimate concerts that value a relaxed, communal vibe.” – OlyArts Magazine

Tickets: $45, includes open bar.
Students with valid ID: $10
