Sarah Walder of the Arizona Project presents a concert for cello and cello with loop station, Saturday September 1, at 7:30 p.m., at the Coconino Center for the Arts in Flagstaff. Tickets will be $14 for adults, $7 for children aged 6-16, free for children 5 and under. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Sarah will be performing her program, Cello Trip III, which includes Bach’s masterly second suite and her own compositions for cello with loop-station, inspired by medieval tunes and renaissance counterpoint with a bit of dramatic Baroque flair. The music is easy, fun, funky, sweet, scratchy, angry, bold, and spacious, with something for everybody to enjoy.
Sarah grew up in the deserts and mountains of Arizona. She studied cello and historical performance practice on viola da gamba at Oberlin Conservatory as well as Baroque cello and violone at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. Sarah plays a wide range of low and historic stringed instruments from periods ranging from the medieval era to the 21st century: vielle, violas da gamba, violone, Baroque cello, Classical cello, modern cello and modern cello with loop-station. She spends her time in both the Netherlands and in Flagstaff.
