Alban Gerhardt: 2012-15 Artist in Residence

Internationally acclaimed cellist and classical music ambassador extraordinaire, Alban Gerhardt will be back in town for his November 14-17, 2014 concerts with the Oregon Symphony. But Alban doesn’t come into town just to play at the Schnitz! While he’s here he’ll be taking his friend Johann Sebastian Bach and his cello all around the Portland area. Alban frequently performs a couple of Bach Cello Suites in each of his public appearances. You may even catch him performing with our fabulous Oregon Symphony players!

His goal is to share classical music in general and the beautiful cello compositions in particular with as wide and diverse an audience as possible.
