Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) September 04, 2013
Dr. Carter Dewberry, a renowned cellist based in Orange County, CA, will lead the Orange County Cello Choir in a performance on Sunday, September 15, at 6:00 p.m. at the GASLAMP Restaurant in Long Beach, CA. In addition to original solo compositions played by Dewberry, the choir will perform classical, pop, rock and folk dance melodies.
“We have a diverse group of musicians ranging in age from 11 to 75 years,” says Dewberry. “Some have or aspire to have a professional career in music. Others are established professionals in non-musical fields looking to their cello as a creative, social outlet. We all have the desire to play and share our passion with other cello lovers.”
Gaslamp owner Michael Neufeld features live performances that range from hard rock to hip-hop, 80’s and metal cover bands. “The Gaslamp is all about live music and diversity. This is our first performance with the cello choir and we’re looking forward to bringing another genre of music to our stage. I strongly encourage people to come and enjoy the food, unique venue and the music which will appeal to every age group.”
Dewberry has a DMA in Music from UCLA. With more than 20 years of experience as a teacher, composer, soloist, orchestral, touring and recording musician, Dewberry originally created the cello choir in 2011 to give her students an opportunity to perform live. Since then the choir has grown to 18 members who perform in different venues throughout Southern California. The performance is open at no cost to the public.
The Gaslamp, a restaurant and entertainment venue, featuring live music, dancing and sports broadcasts, is located at 6251 E. Pacific Coast Highway in Long Beach at the corner of Loynes and PCH.
