Renowned cellist to perform at Grace Church Feb. 14

Grace Episcopal Church in The Plains presents a special Valentine's Day concert with cellist Amit Peled. 

Part of the 2015-16 Grace Church concert series, the performance will take place at 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 14.  

A renowned Israeli cellist, Mr. Peled has performed as a soloist with many orchestras worldwide and works as a professor at the Peabody Conservatory of Music of Johns Hopkins University.

Following a performance at Alice Tully Hall playing the Hindemith cello concerto, the New York Times stated that his playing possessed “glowing tone, a seductive timbre and emotionally pointed approach to phrasing that made you want to hear him again.”

Described as a profound artist with a charismatic stage presence, Mr. Peled will perform on a cello owned by the legendary musician Pablo Casals. 

Noreen Polera will accompany on piano. 

A reception with the artists will follow featuring Mars chocolates. 

Tickets available online or by calling 540-253-5177 extension 107. Adults, $25. Students, $15. Ages 17 and younger, free.

Grace Episcopal Church is located at 6507 Main Street, The Plains.
