Cellist Evan Drachman, along with pianist Jeffrey Grossman will perform live in Buffalo this Friday at Buffalo High School.

This performance, which is free to the public, is the latest in a long line of performances brought to audiences in Wyoming thanks to the support and sponsorship of the Wyoming Arts Council, the Johnson County Arts and Humanities Council, The Piatigorsky Foundation and Seymour and Muriel Thickman.

Dr. Seymour (Sy) Thickman explains how these series came about and why.

According to the Johnson County Arts and Humanities Council, Evan Drachman is a world-renowned cellist who studied music in a number of famous institutions under many well-known instructors.

Gregor Piatigorsky, Drachman's grandfather, was also a world-class cellist and teacher, and the two share the ability to make the cello imitate the human voice and the ability to tell a story through their music.

According to Dr. Thickman, the performers that take part in these programs share the belief that it is important to bring this music to those in more rural settings that may not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy it.

The concert is free and open to the public and will begin Friday evening April 15th at 7 pm at the BHS Auditorium.
