Clubbin' with the Cello

Matt Haimovitz is one of the best cellists in the world today, and you're liable to see him play just about anywhere.

Haimovitz is midway through his "Figment" Tour, saluting contemporary music icon Elliott Carter and also bringing together a wide range of important new music for cello and electronics. Look for Haimovitz next week, just up the block from Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis.....at the Dakota Jazz Club.

The Haimovitz Dakota gig is October 28th at 7pm.
