Performing Arts: CelloBop

Wednesday, December 11, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Using the electric cello for improvisational classical, blues, jazz, electronic, funk and folk music, Gideon Freudmann of CelloBop imaginatively riffs on conventions and traditions. He loops and layers his sounds with pedals and amplifiers, sculpting orchestras out of thin air.

Gideon Freudmann is a composer, performer and cello innovator. His music is sweet, soulful, playful and it inventive. He composes for film, theater and dance and has recorded 21 CDs. He is a founding member of the Portland Cello Project, a TEDtalk speaker, contributor to NPR and This American Life, has performed in Europe, Australia and Taiwan. His music comes to life in front of an audience where he delves in to adventurous improvisations along with classical music and his layered, nuanced tunes.

This free performance is made possible by the Friends of the Lake Oswego Public Library. It takes place at the library: 706 Fourth Street, Lake Oswego, OR 97034. For more information, please call or email librarian Shannon Sedell at 503-534-5663 /
