        Award-winning cellist, Ismar Gomes, has performed internationally as a chamber musician, and soloist. Hailed for his “impressive virtuosity, energy, and a handsome tonal range” (Berkshire Review), he has established himself as a captivating young artist, delivering exciting and innovative performances.  He has appeared at the Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival, Evolution Contemporary Music Series, String Fest, Le Petit Salon, Early Music at St. Mark’s, Old Town Hall Concerts, and more. His recent collaborators include members of the Pittsburgh and Baltimore Symphonies, and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, as well as members of the Johannes and Brentano Quartets. Also in demand as an orchestral player, Mr. Gomes was the Baltimore Symphony’s Fellow for the 2015 – 2016 season, and is a member of both the Virginia Symphony and the Delaware Symphony.   Recent appearances have taken Mr. Gomes across the United States performing many recitals with his Duo partner, pianist Wan-Chi Su. The concert is free and open to the public.  Contributions will be accepted to help support the Concert Series.  A reception follows the concert.
