Mark your calendar now, on Thursday, May 21, 2020 at 2:00pm ET Carnegie Hall will broadcast a free live tribute concert to Lynn Harrell. It is an absolutely beautiful tribute idea and an equally challenging task to organize in today’s environment. Thank you Carnegie Hall. I can’t wait.
Here’s the official event description: American cellist Lynn Harrell’s half-century career placed him in the highest echelon of performing artists. A superstar roster of 12 fellow cellists celebrate Harrell’s life, including performances of Klengel’s Hymnus and the Preludio from Villa-Lobos’s Bachianas brasileiras No. 1.
