Boston Cello Quartet to Perform at St. Mark’s on October 1

Posted: September 25, 2012

On Monday, October 1, the Boston Cello Quartet will be presenting a program in the Class of 1945 Hall at 9:35 AM. The public is also invited.

The Boston Cello Quarter was founded in 2010 by four cellists from the Boston Symphony Orchestra: Blaise Dejardin, Adam Esbensen, Mihail Jojatu, and Alexandre Lecarme. They are originally from France, Romania, and the United States. Their repertoire includes classical works, jazz, tango music, and contemporary pieces, along with a few comic medleys.

This is the first time in the history of the BSO that this kind of Cello Quartet has come together. The Boston Globe has called them “the groovy BSO chamber ensemble.” The group recently joined with composer Olivier Derivier to record the soundtrack for the videogame “Of Orcs and Men”, to be released this October. Their first CD album is in the works for release this winter.

This is the first event in a series of musical events at St. Mark’s throughout the 2012-13 school year. Later in October (10/19 8:30 PM) will be the annual Parents’ Weekend Performance featuring the Choir, Chamber Players, Jazz Band, Cats Meow, and Octet, along with performances by Theater students.
