Classic Meets Contemporary

The history of the cello dates back to the 1500s, when Italian craftsmen began building bass violins to mimic the lower registers of the human voice. Today, this classic instrument is finding popularity in the twenty-first century thanks to Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, together known as 2Cellos. Sulic and Hauser achieved viral fame after they released their cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” in 2011. Regardless of whether they’re playing hits by Vivaldi or U2, they continue to entertain international audiences with their masterful technique, rock and roll energy, and passion for contemporary melodies. On September 24, they will perform songs from their latest album, Score, at the Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton. Featuring accompaniment by the London Symphony Orchestra, Score includes themes from television shows like Game of Thrones as well as memorable film songs such as “Moon River” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, “May It Be” from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, and “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. Ticket prices start at $33. (561-393-7890)
