Cello concert by Ruth Drummond & Paul Christopher 3 pm Sun, Sept 24, Centenary's Anderson Recital Hall
The duo released a compact disc by the same title in 2004 on the Human Metronome label. The second recording in the series, "The Perfect Gift," was released in 2005, and the third will be recorded this fall with a release scheduled for a later date. I'd like to add that I have a copy of their first disk and it's swell.
Christopher is Instructor of Low Strings at Northwestern State University and the principal cellist of the Longview Symphony Orchestra. He is also a member of the Sylvan Chamber Ensemble, which is on the Texas Commission of the Arts touring roster.
Prior to his appointment at Northwestern, he served 15 years as the principal cellist of the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra and Shreveport Opera and was a member of the Premier String Quartet.
