Benjamin Whitcomb and Anders Yocom

“From 1 to 1,000 in Music: Bach to Mahler”

Ingenious intrigue and variety for one instrument. One thousand performers and a story of redemption. This talk will feature live performance and recorded excerpts, and may serve as a prelude to performances of the Mahler Symphony No. 8, “The Symphony of 1000” by The Madison Symphony Orchestra, on May 3, 4 and 5 at Overture Hall in Madison.

Dr. Benjamin Whitcomb is a professional cellist and Professor of Cello and Music Theory at UW-Whitewater. Anders Yocom is a Classical Music Host for Wisconsin Public Radio.
