“Alisa Weilerstein is too big a talent to be pigeonholed.”– New York Magazine



The young cellist Alisa Weilerstein, a recipient of a 2011 MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, has justly earned international acclaim for emotionally resonant performances of both traditional and contemporary music. Weilerstein will bring her technical precision and impassioned musicianship to the extraordinary task of performing all six of Bach’s solo cello suites in one evening.

Presented in honor of Steven Cochran by his friends and family.
