ArtsNOW Concert Series: Cellist Timothy Holley

January 22, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$5 – $12

The ArtsNOW new music concert series presents cellist Timothy Holley.

Holley is a proponent of new music and has a special interest in the music of African-American composers.  He has collaborated with the Mallarmé Chamber Players and the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra since 1997.

His doctoral dissertation at the University of Michigan focused on the cello music of African American composers, and he has given premiere performances of works by T. J. Anderson, William Banfield, Trevor Weston and Adolphus Hailstork–including theSonata for Solo Cello, which was written for him.

He has performed Valerie Capers’ Song of the Seasons for soprano, cello and piano with Louise Toppin in Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York City. He can also be heard on commercial recordings with Nneena Freelon (Homefree), Oral Moses (Songs of America), and the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra (American Spectrum).

Holley will perform works by Adolphus Hailstork and Trevor Weston. We will also honor the late NC State poet Gerald Barrax by showing a short video about his life and work and by reading some of his poems. In addition, there will be electroacoustic works and works for voice.
