Share

Denise Nathanson, cellist, will be presenting an afternoon of delightful cello music Sunday afternoon, September 16, 2018, at 4 p.m. The Church of the Holy Trinity (Oxford) is excited to have our friend, colleague, and community member share her amazing talents and vivacious personality with us.

Two friends have been playing together on sultry summer afternoons at Holy Trinity. This concert evolved from our time of music making, talking, and laughing – a few of our favorite pieces! You are certain to enjoy an all British program featuring beautiful, light pieces from composers, such as William Lloyd Webber (father of Andrew Lloyd Webber). Included are the stunning cello pieces by Paradis, Faure, and Schubert, featured at Prince Harry’s recent wedding.

This is a wonderful and rare opportunity to experience Denise Nathanson in concert.

Being part of a musical family, Denise began her cello studies at the age of 8. She furthered her studies at Florida State University and The Catholic University of America (DC). Ms. Nathanson went on to serve as a Principal with the Maryland Symphony Orchestra, and Associate Principal for the Annapolis and Roanoke (VA) Symphony Orchestras. She was a professor at Anne Arundel Community College and Frederick Community College, where she performed numerous concerts with the Hood College Chamber Players. Ms. Nathanson has performed chamber music in many venues: Alice Tully Hall, Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, and in numerous local concert series in Talbot and Anne Arundel Counties.

Ms. Nathanson also served as a Music Program Director for Academy Art Museum in Easton. As an educator, she has been active in developing and performing in outreach programs through the State of Maryland. She currently maintains a private studio in Key West Florida.

Presently Ms. Nathanson resides most of the year in Key West, where she is the Music Director for the Key West Community Orchestra. In December 2016, she formed The Key West Duo with violinist Irie Monte. They offer elegant chamber music for all occasions. Ms. Nathanson is an RTY-200 hour yoga instructor, teaching at Shakti Yoga (Key West) and locally when she is in Oxford. In her free time, Denise enjoys needlepoint and can be found teaching classes and helping fellow stitchers.
