ArtPlay Parlor Series: Cicily Parnas, Cello

29 Aug 2013 - 19:00

Birmingham, AL

The ASC is highlighting the beauty and complexity of the cello with a series of presentations and educational events. Our first featured artist is Cicely Parnas, First Prize Winner of the 2012 Young Concert Artists International Auditions and granddaughter of the illustrious cellist, Leslie Parnas. The younger Parnas began playing the cello at age 4 and made her concert debut at 11 with the Woodstock Chamber Orchestra. She has won numerous prizes since age 13, including the 2011 Artistic Excellence Award and First Prize in the Cello Concerto Competition at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, where she earned an Artist Diploma. Parnas, who performs on a 1712 Giovanni Grancino violoncello, has been heard on NPR’s Performance Today series and recently made her Carnegie Hall concerto debut.
