twisted pearl’s cellist zoë douthit brings to the table a luscious program of cello music accompanied by harpsichord sourced from around 18th century europe. all in one night, you’ll hear the same instrument express the fearlessness of italy through vivaldi, the delicate charm of france through boismortier, and the common ground between the two through barrière. it will be a rollercoaster for sure. don’t you dare miss it. seating limited.
