Khari Joyner

Sponsored by Beaverdam Builders

July 19 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Intersection of Route 36 & Cartwright Road
Denver, NY 12421 United States

Khari Joyner, celebrated cellist, presents Musician as Composer as Musician, an evening of solo cello music exploring the relationships between composer and musician – and the rich history of these roles being embodied in the same individual. Joyner will share several original compositions and feature several centuries of works for solo cello by composers who have a great affinity for the instrument.

Dubbed by the New York Classical Review as “one of the most exciting young musicians on the classical scene,” Khari Joyner has a following nationally and abroad. A passionate advocate for the music of today, his recent accomplishments include performing the world premiere of MacArthur Genius Tyshawn Sorey’s Cycles of My Being, the New York premiere of Kaija Saariaho’s cello concerto Notes on Light, and the world premiere of Carman Moore’s MADIBA for cello and orchestra. He has also recently performed as a guest with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra throughout Japan. Further accolades include a private performance for President Barack Obama in the Oval Office, a performance of Britten’s Symphony for Cello and Orchestra as soloist with the Juilliard Orchestra, and the U.S. Premiere of the late Valentin Bibik’s Cello Concerto No. 2, with the New Juilliard Ensemble. He was awarded a 2017-2018 career grant from the Leonore Annenberg Fellowship for the Performing and Visual Arts.
