WICHITA - Plymouth Congregational Church presents Cello Fury, a four-piece cello rock ensemble, in concert on Saturday, Feb. 10 at 7pm, with a reception to follow.
Featuring three cellists and a drummer, Cello Fury combines the symphonic sounds of the cello with driving rock beats. Its original music appeals to a diverse audience throughout the U.S. and abroad. Cellists Simon Cummings, Ben Muñoz and Nicole Myers along with drummer David Throckmorton make up the group.
Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, Cello Fury has performed on radio and television, in rock clubs, concert halls, and music festivals for audiences as large as 67,000 (Pittsburgh Steelers halftime show). As an independent band, Cello Fury has released two albums of original music. An Amazon website reviewer says, “I had the opportunity to see this group live and they were spellbinding. The mix of cello and drums is superb.”
Another says, “Cello Fury is not your grandmother’s quartet ... The music reaches deep into the souls of the audience and compels either movement or enraptured attention; demanding and pushing with each note and phrase.”
Cello Fury’s performance is part of “Word & Note: The Divine Arts of Knowledge and Exaltation,” an annual event at Plymouth featuring nationally known author-theologians and musicians. The weekend program of Feb. 9-11 includes lectures, discussion, and musical presentations.
