The Haddonfield Cello Society returns once again to perform at First Night. The glorious sound of cellos is accompanied by piano and violin, with the special addition of French Horn. Their unique blend has been part of Haddonfield’s celebration for many years. The group founded two decades ago by members of the Philharmonic of Southern New Jersey play in a variety of orchestras and ensembles. They come together several times a year to perform music written and arranged for multiple cellos. All local musicians, they have presented programs of popular rock and folk songs, show tunes, and classical pieces at community events, activity centers, and libraries in the South Jersey area. They share musical commentary on each selection with some sing a-long tunes. Their new program “Call It a Day” celebrates the many melodies about sunrise to sunset included are Those Were the Days, Morning Has Broken, Here Comes the Sun, Beautiful Tonight, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, along with nocturnes and lullabies.
VENUE: Masonic Temple (2) 45 minute performances.
