Rosin: Cello Duo Daniel Gaisford & Jessika Soli

February 23, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$30

Daniel Gaisford and Jessika Soli are Rosin

Utah cellists Jessika Soli and Daniel Gaisford will delight Kayenta audiences with a broad range of beautiful cello music spanning from the past to present-day. The duo enjoys sharing the experimental and educational aspects of their music in their live performances, giving audiences the best of great classic and new works, some of which they have composed. Tickets are $30 and available through: Kayentaarts.com or the box office: 435-674-2787.

As Gaisford explains, “The great Cellists of the past were composers for the instrument and created beautiful works that inspired and developed cello techniques. Following that great tradition, we also write for the cello ourselves and make transcriptions of popular works that fit the cello’s vocal and rhythmic qualities.”  Younger audience members enjoy the popular electric cello, which has a “polyphonic—meaning, “with many voices”—quality. Rosin will perform music ranging from Telemann to Klengell to Michael Jackson and Coldplay.
