Young cellists to perform with orchestra
Region - The eighth annual concert of the Vivaldi Cello Festival Orchestra will take place at 7 p.m. Saturday May 31 at Mill Pond Auditorium in Westborough.
The event is sponsored by parents, local businesses and the Westborough Arts Council. This professional orchestra is conducted by Paul Dulude, also the director of the Boston Virtuosi.
The concert allows young local cellists an opportunity to perform solo cello pieces accompanied by professionals in a professional setting.
Cello students from Westborough performing in the concert include: Max Polich, Alex Arsenis, Chris Arsenis, Emily Brown, Jordan Hensley, Andrew Hyde, Jaemo Kang, Ayako Mikami and James Murray. Students from Whitinsville Christian School are Ethan Bates, Matt Hudson and Sun-Mee Kasper. James Hardy of Worcester is a student at St. Bernadette's school in Northborough, and Junghune Nam of Northborough started his cello studies in Westborough schools. Matt Flynn, a graduate of Westborough High, now majoring in music at Boston University in Boston, will also play.
The students are all taught by Maryan McClelland Pietropaolo, a former teacher at University of Lowell and Phillips Exeter Academy. She moved to Westborough in 1999 with her husband, Joseph Pietropaolo, a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra viola section for 39 years.
The concert is free, but donations are encouraged and gratefully received.
