Dazzling Celtic Cello Performance coming to Bend October 2nd

October 2, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Celtic Cellist Ilse de Ziah performs an exciting and virtuosic concert. A chance to catch this Irish/Australian cellist in action!

Ilse de Ziah – virtuoso cellist, composer, and arranger from Cork, Ireland– will be performing in Bend on October 2nd as part of a two-week tour of the Pacific Northwest.

This is no ordinary event. Do you love soul-stirring music, sonorous cello, slow Irish airs? Ilse draws upon traditional Irish melodies, easily blending classical and contemporary styles with a rich folkloric tradition, to transport the listener to an entirely new musical landscape. At times her cello sounds like a full orchestra; or her composition may feature one haunting musical phrase. Her vibrant performances, with an intricate weaving of melody and harmony, have the ability to transfix and enchant.

Ilse de Ziah travels from Ireland to perform in a series of concerts from Seattle to Bend. This afternoon concert will feature her award winning music and exquisite exploration of a Celtic Cello repertoire. Ilse’s mastery of the deep connection the cello makes with our hearts, brings to life the mysterious world of the Irish Air. Her virtuosic compositions are exciting to witness first hand in this intimate setting. Not to be missed!

“A magical musical journey to lose and find yourself. Ilse touches the cello and her soul reaches out to your heart, your future and an infinite past.”
