Faculty Select Series: Dale Henderson, cello
THE COMPLETE BACH CELLO SUITES
WITH CELLIST DALE HENDERSON
Wednesday, August 31, 2016
Music on the Square, 21 N. Indiana
Phenom New York cellist DALE HENDERSON, founder of Bach in the Subways, performs the complete Bach Cello Suites for DePauw School of Music's Faculty Select series on August 31. The Cello Suites have a particular significance for Henderson for the way they were revived by world-renown Catalan cellist Pablo Casals, who in 1890 discovered the manuscript for the Suites in a second-hand music store in Barcelona and made it his mission to give them new life through performance. In a similar fashion, Henderson has made it his mission to reinvigorate and re-popularize Bach and classical music through his own performances, and by inviting artists globally to play Bach for new audiences with Bach in the Subways, sparking millions of singular moments of musical discovery worldwide.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Described by Yo-Yo Ma as “a very gifted musician, a natural cellist,” Dale Henderson began studying cello when he was five. He enjoyed regular performances as a chamber musician, soloist and orchestra cellist, and made his professional solo debut at thirteen with the Buffalo Philharmonic and conductor Eiji Oue. In 1993, at the invitation of Sir Yehudi Menuhin, he attended the International Menuhin Music Academy in Gstaad, Switzerland, and from 1996-2000, Henderson earned his Bachelor of Music degree from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. He now lives in New York City.
