About This Program

Approximate length 1:00

South African cellist Abel Selaocoe makes his SPCO debut in a program that explores his musical roots and the parallel worlds of folk music from the African continent and the European classical tradition. Equally at home improvising on African folk songs and Baroque works from the 1700s, Selaocoe takes us on a musical journey for which he alone is a guide. He combines virtuosic performance with improvisation, singing and body percussion, seamlessly moving between a plethora of styles and traditions.

All audience members are required to present proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to attending this event. Masks are required regardless of vaccination status. More Information
