Join us at FINCA on Tuesday, October 4th between 6-8pm to hear renowned cellist Matt Haimovitz perform in the lounge.

The New York Times has called Matt Haimovitz a “ferociously talented cellist who brings his megawatt sound and uncommon expressive gifts to a vast variety of styles.”  After attending Julliard Music School, he began performing professionally as a teenager with the Israel Philharmonic and New York Philharmonic.  The same year he was the youngest musician to receive the Avery Fisher Career Grant for exceptional musical talent, and went on to sign an exclusive recording contract with the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft.  Haimovitz has appeared with most of the major orchestras across North America, Europe and Asia and recorded numerous pieces, many of which have gained critical acclaim for his fresh and passionate interpretation of classical music as well as creating new music.  His most recent recordings are of Bach's The Cello Suites, which he will be performing at The University of Utah as part of UtahPresents.  

We are honored that he has also agreed to perform at FINCA for a special concert while he is in Utah.  No cover charge, but reservations are recommended. 801-487-0699
