KCH's PASSING THE TORCH

featuring master cellist Anthony Elliott
and up-and-coming violinist Camille Jones

Thursday, June 16TH @ 8:00 PM
Masterclass and Q&A at 5:30 PM


The Passing the Torch series is
made possible with support from the
Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation.

Kerrytown Concert House continues its community mentorship project connecting area master musicians with young, promising artists for a series of performances and mentorship conversations. This concert pairs legendary cellist, and U-M professor emeritus, Anthony Elliott, and the talented young violinist, Camille Jones. Anthony Elliott has performed as a soloist with the world’s leading orchestras including: the New York Philharmonic, Minnesota Orchestra, Detroit Symphony, and Vancouver Symphony. Strad Magazine notes that “his emotional communication is often profound, and his glittering, silvery tone captivates the ear.” Currently a Master’s degree student at the University of Michigan, Camille Jones is a recent graduate of University of Maryland, College Park. She has worked with various festival orchestras and chamber groups, including the National Orchestral Institute and Festival, and Bowdoin International Music Festival.

Elliot and Jones will host a pre-concert conversation/masterclass that is free and open to the public.

At the recital, they will perform a diverse program of classic and new works for cello and violin, shed light on their respective careers, and discuss the deep significance of intergenerational relationships in music.
