ACTU presents Cellist Friday
Arts for the Community at Thomas University presents award-winning cellist Boyan Bonev at noon on Friday, May 16, in the chapel of the Thomasville First United Methodist Church at 425 N. Broad St. The program will include works by Bach, Cassado and Christokov.
Bonev is a native of Bulgaria. He holds Doctor of Music and Master of Music degrees from the Florida State University and performs with the Tallahassee, Pensacola, Albany, Florida Lakes, Sinfonia Gulf Coast and Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestras. He was featured as a soloist of the Florida Lakes Symphony Orchestra and the Stara Zagora Symphony Orchestra, and performed at Carnegie Hall, Weill Recital Hall.
“Boyan is one of my favorite performers, and his commitment to the music is evident in each and every note he plays,” said Dr. Karl Barton, series coordinator. “This is also a great way to finish our 2013-2014 season.”
Currently, Bonev is teaching cello, double bass and orchestra at the University of West Florida and Pensacola State College.
The concert is free and open to the public. A complimentary luncheon will follow the performance. For additional information, visit www.thomasu.edu/actu or call (229) 227-6964.
