STONINGTON — Cellist Anita Græf, who has been described by the Galena Gazette as "a world-class musician," will bring her “high energy and polish” to the La Grua Center this weekend.

Græf, who has earned recognition for her music-making as an artist, is equally at home exploring traditional as well as contemporary works. She also possesses a deep commitment to service, outreach and education.

Græf, who has appeared at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, has performed at the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert series “Concerts from the Library of Congress” and with orchestras across the United States, with recent and upcoming engagements including the Louisville Orchestra, Arkansas Philharmonic Orchestra and Riverside Symphony.

In her Music Matters début, "Hemispheres Colliding," Græf will "delve into the concern of current composers to confer relevance and understanding on the complexities and challenges of now," according to the center's website. She’ll also explore "the special fabrics of the Black, Asian, Hispanophone, African, and some surprising other cultural hemispheres, then cap it all off with a majestic Bach cello suite."
