With tonalities similar to the human voice, the sounds from within a cello can connect with audiences in a way many other string instruments cannot. It’s Grammy Award-winning artist Zuill Bailey’s instrument of choice, and audiences across the Inland Northwest can hear Bailey and other accomplished cellists perform selections from various classical composers during the Northwest BachFest’s Summer Classics tour. Each performance features pieces of music that showcases the range of expressions and emotions a musician can create with the stringed instrument. Three separate concerts are scheduled at venues in Spokane, Coeur d’Alene and Sandpoint. See the BachFest’s website for complete details and ticketing.
Sun, Aug. 26 at 3 pm (Spokane); Mon, Aug. 27 at 7 pm (Coeur d’Alene); and Wed, Aug. 29 at 7 pm (Sandpoint) • $30-$40; $15/students • Locations vary • nwbachfest.com • 326-4942
