Ô-Celli at Acadia’s Performing Arts Series October 28
By Peter Smith

The Acadia Performing Arts Series continues Saturday, October 28 at 7:30pm at the Festival Theatre in Wolfville. The series is pleased to present Ô-Celli, a cello octet on tour from Europe.

​What can sound better than a cello? Eight cellos! This instrument, the closest to the human voice, is one of the few which carries being multiplied. When played together with others, the beauties of this instrument add up, giving birth to a unique, full, and exceptional sound. Based in Belgium, Ô-Celli was brought to life by the shared passion of eight cellists, chamber musicians and concertists, for this exceptional vibration they created. Together, they take us on a fabulous journey through a repertoire of both original and arranged pieces, as they eagerly travel through a wide musical panel, ranging from Tchaikovsky to Strauss, passing by the music of Piazzolla and Nino Rota.​

Their tour of eastern Canada includes concerts in Sault Ste. Marie in Ontario, Montréal, Victoriaville, and Terrebonne in Quebec, Fredericton and Moncton in New Brunswick, and Wolfville and Halifax in Nova Scotia.​

Please come and enjoy the glorious sounds of this unique ensemble in Wolfville. Tickets are $34 for adults, $22 for students.
