"...a clever, entertaining idea and proof, if any was needed, that the soulful cello can attract a crowd and satisfy it." -The New York Times

Lincoln Center is home to the world’s finest musicians, and this ensemble of cellists from CMS, The Juilliard School, the Metropolitan Opera, and the New York Philharmonic knows no equal. Having stormed the CMS stage three seasons ago with an unforgettable program of music ranging from the Renaissance to modern times, The Cellists of Lincoln Center return to offer an evening of unmatched sonority, beauty, and fun.
