A special free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be presented on Tuesday, July 31, at 7 p.m. in the library’s community room. It will feature Coterie Celli, a group of cellists from all over San Diego who enjoy coming together to make and share beautiful cello-ensemble music. The group is under the Greater San Diego Music Coterie, founded by Dr. Angela Yeung, who has performed nationally and internationally as a conductor and a cellist. The program will include a mix of original works and arrangements for cello ensemble, from Latin tunes to classical pieces. It will last 45 minutes.
Since its inception, Coterie Celli has performed in San Diego at public libraries, churches, the Ronald MacDonald House, and most recently at two public performances with the Greater San Diego Community Chorus and Orchestra. Its current members are: Bonnie Bertolaet, Aaron Bullard, Susan Cramer, Mark Delin, Vanessa Dinning, Bailey Gordon, Eric Hagen, Grace Harvey, Evelyn Kooperman, Pat McClure, Wayne Pritchard, Mark Sawyer, Stephanie Sontag, Martha Terzich, and Cliff Thrasher.
The occupations of these cellists include a dental hygienist, pediatrician, San Diego Opera staff member, nurse, judge, middle school music teacher, educator, college student, librarian, city manager, and biologist.
The library is located at 3919 Townsgate Drive in Carmel Valley. For further information call (858) 552-1668.
