Gabriel Cabezas, cello

Thursday, April 24 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm - Great Hall
http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/gabriel-cabezas-cello/?utm_source=CSUN&utm_medium=Calendar

Gabriel Cabezas has fast become one of the most talented young cello players performing today. Born in 1992, he made his world debut with the Cleveland Orchestra when he was only 15 years old. Since then he has performed as soloist with Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra of Costa Rica, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, the New World Symphony, the Florida Orchestra, the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, the Nashville Symphony, and a host of other prestigious classical orchestras. The Oregonian describes him as "...an intense player who connects to the music naturally, without artifice, and brings a singing line to the cello." His debut on our Great Hall stage is one of the season's most anticipated performances.

Image for Straighten Up and Fly Right: The Nat King Cole Tribute featuring Ramsey Lewis & John PizzarelliStraighten Up and Fly Right: The Nat King Cole Tribute featuring Ramsey Lewis & John Pizzarelli

8:00 pm - 10:00 pm - Great Hall
http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/straighten-up-and-fly-right-the-nat-king-cole-tribute-featuring-ramsey-lewis-and-john-pizzarelli/?utm_source=CSUN&utm_medium=Calendar

Nat King Cole broke the pop barrier with his smoky, smooth vocals, stringing along a huge number of solid hits right after his first "Straighten Up And Fly Right" soared up the charts in 1943. As a singer, he was called "the best friend a song ever had," but he was essentially a jazz performer at heart. Even those later tracks crafted for the pop charts belie a piano technique, vocal phrasings, and on-the-mark orchestration that are indebted to his early roots in jazz. Ramsey Lewis and John Pizzarelli have crafted a tribute to the titan of fifties vocal pop, from his hits along with those singular tracks of sophisticated cool jazz that have influenced their own careers.
