Fine Arts Chamber Players invites you to its FREE Bancroft Family Concert on Saturday, May 14, 2016, at the Dallas Museum of Art’s Horchow Auditorium featuring young cellist Sai Sai Ding, winner of the prestigious Fort Worth Symphony’s Young Artist competition (2016) and many other accolades. The May 14 concert also features pianist Yurie Iwasaki.
The program includes Cello Sonata in D Major by Pietro Locatelli; Sonata for Cello by George Crumb; and Sonata for Cello and Piano No. 2 in F Major, Op. 99 by Johannes Brahms.
