Waynesburg University will host Cello Fury and special guest Texture Contemporary Ballet as a part of the University’s Performing Arts Series Thursday, Sept. 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center on the campus of Waynesburg University.
Admission is $15 for adults, $5 for children under 12 and free to Waynesburg University students, faculty and staff with representation of University ID.
A chamber music group, Cello Fury’s original music combines the emotive and symphonic sounds of the cello with driving rock beats to create a cinematic, progressive rock sound. Continually developing their own unique style of cello rock music, cellists Simon Cummings, Ben Muñoz and Nicole Myers along with drummer David Throckmorton unleash vitality and rhythmic drive in their music and dare to venture past classical expectations.
Cello Fury has performed on both radio and television, in rock clubs, concert halls and music festivals such as South by Southwest (SXSW), performing for audiences as large as 67,000 and touring throughout 25 states and abroad.
In conjunction with the Sept. 18 concert, the Department of Fine Arts will host two residency opportunities in the Marsh Center. A master class will be held Wednesday, Sept. 17, from 4 to 6 p.m., as well as a Fine Arts Collegium Workshop Thursday, Sept. 18, from noon to 1 p.m. Both will be held in the Marsh Center, have free admission and are open to the public.
