Cellist Fred Sherry has been called a pioneer and a visionary, for very good reason. He has been closely associated with many contemporary composers, including Charles Wuorinen and Luciano Berio. He has been busy on five continents introducing audiences to new music.
Sherry's upcoming visit to the University at Buffalo, then, is bound to create a good deal of excitement. He'll be performing at 8 p.m. next Friday in Lippes Hall on the North Campus. On the program will be music by Wuorinen, Elliott Carter, Debussy, Stravinsky and Johann Sebastian Bach.
Admission is $12, with discounts for seniors, WNED members and students.
Two behind-the-scenes events are also scheduled. At 3 p.m. Thursday, Sherry will join UB student composers for a Composer Reading. He will also give a master class at 1 p.m. next Friday. Both these events take place in 250 Baird Hall on the North Campus and are free and open to the public.
