Cello Celli!

 

continued

The other "Cello Celli!" cellists are Mike Karoub of the Royal Garden Trio, who's also played bass in James Dapogny's Chicago Jazz Band, and two local teenage wunderkinder, Eric Tinkerhess and Nathaniel Pierce. Snyder calls Karoub an "underknown treasure" who manages to make the cello sound right at home playing jazz: "What he does with the cello makes it sound like it's always been a part of that music." Tinkerhess and Pierce are young virtuosos, capable of absorbing all that their mentors can teach them and of expanding the possibilities - and quite likely the audiences - for the cello.

In a concert of many low notes, one of the high notes, literally, will be the only noncellist, violinist Gabe Bolkosky. Snyder's arrangement of Tom Waits's "Little Drop of Poison" of Shrek 2 fame - talk about varied genres - will feature the low range of the violin, its deep, dark sonority blending perfectly with the rich tones of the four cellos.
