Tonight’s performance has been made possible by the generosity of Mary and David Meeker.
The tasting room at Canoe Ridge Vineyards will resonate not with bells as it did back when it housed the Walla Walla Traction Company’s trolleys, but with the songful tone of solo cello. David Requiro is one of the finest cellists of our generation, garnering numerous awards including First Prize at the prestigious 2008 Walter W. Naumburg Foundation International Violoncello Competition. What's the difference between a violoncello and a cello? It’s really the same thing as the difference between a violin and a fiddle. We’ll settle the matter and much more during this must-see recital.
