Violoncellist brings culture, music to Galesburg

Musician Asaf Kolerstein isn’t a novice to the music world.

The Tel-Aviv born musician is one of the most distinguished artists in Mexico. He plays often in prestigious and celebrated orchestras as a pianist and string player. He’s currently the principal cellist of the State Orchestra of Mexico.

Now, he will be performing violoncello in the Knox-Galesburg Symphony at the Orpheum Theatre. Kolerstein will perform Lalo’s Cello Concerto, and the Knox-Galesburg Symphony will perform Stravinsky’s “Firebird Suite” and Wilson’s “Meteora,” conducted by artistic director Bruce Polay.

The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12. Tickets begin at $10. Children and students are half-price.
