  • Details

    Presented by the Cultural Center of Cape Cod on Sunday, April 30, at 3pm. Currently a C.V. Starr Doctoral Fellow at The Juilliard School, cellist Samuel DeCaprio is quickly establishing himself as one of today's most creative artists and collaborators. With performances taking place from the jungles of Bali to the meditative depths of an underground New York City crypt to Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, he aspires to use his voice to bring the works of composers, both revered and underrepresented, to uplift modern audiences. Recent highlights of his career include his Lincoln Center concerto debut presenting the United States premiere of Grażyna Bacewicz’s Cello Concerto No. 2 with the Juilliard Orchestra and conductor David Robertson in Alice Tully Hall, as well as solo and chamber performances in England, New York City, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. In past seasons, DeCaprio has given solo performances in major cities across the United States, Canada, and Europe, and has been heard in concerto appearances with the University of Connecticut and Willimantic symphony orchestras performing concerti by Haydn and Shostakovich. DeCaprio holds degrees from the University of Connecticut (Bachelor of Music, summa cum laude), Eastman School of Music (Master of Music), Mannes School of Music (Professional Studies Diploma), and Yale School of Music (Master of Musical Arts). While at the Eastman School, he was also awarded the prestigious Performer’s Certificate. DeCaprio performs on a 1714 Claude Pierray cello on generous loan from The Juilliard School. Do not miss the chance to experience Samuel DeCaprio as he performs an afternoon of J.S. Bach cello suites. $25. Tickets are available at www.cultural-center.org or by calling 508-394-7100. The Cultural Center is located at 307 Old Main Street in South Yarmouth.
