Holiday Recital by Cellist Aleks Tengesdal
Aleksander Tengesdal will perform a solo recital at the library on Saturday, December 14, at 11 a.m. He will play classic and improvisational works, including “The Coventry Carol” and a traditional Finnish carol, as well as secular works, in celebration of winter.
Aleks has played in the Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra and the Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra. He studied cello at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, and at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland. Next year he will be the featured soloist in a performance related to the library’s One Book, One Community project, and in 2015 he will perform the Dvořák cello concerto with the Lake Itasca Symphony Orchestra. Equally versatile with classical music and contemporary works, Aleks also composes and performs his own work.
