The husband and wife duo of Elizabeth Schultze and Bo Ericsson will present cello duets ranging from the Baroque period to the present as part of the Cape Cod Museum of Art's Music & More winter concert series.
As a duo, Schultze and Ericsson have played many concerts all over the Cape since moving here in 1991. They are both members of the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra, where Ericsson is principal cellist, holding the Robert M. Heberton Chair in perpetuity. They also performed with Simon Sinfonietta, who gave concerts to benefit Falmouth Academy. In addition, they’ve raised funds for Lower Cape schools’ string programs through their “In Praise of Cellos” concerts. They instruct students of all ages in cello in the large studio at their East Orleans home.
Ericsson, a native of Sweden, graduated from the Gothenborg Conservatory of Music and studied at the Swedish Radio School in Stockholm. He has been principal cellist with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and the Uppsala Chamber Orchestra. As a cellist of the Berwald String Quartet, he toured extensively throughout Europe.
Schultze is a graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory in Ohio, where she studied with internationally known violinist Andor Toth. She further studied abroad with British cellist William Pleeth, Danish cellist Erling Blöndal Bengtsson and Swedish cellist Frans Helmerson. She has been a member of the Oklahoma Symphony (now Oklahoma City Philharmonic), the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra in Norway and the Uppsala Chamber Orchestra in Sweden and has played extensively with ensembles in Atlanta, Copenhagen, Torino and Stockholm. Schultze has also spent many summers performing at music festivals, including the National Repertory Orchestra in Breckenridge, Colorado and the Colorado Music Festival Orchestra in Boulder. She has also made solo appearances with the National Repertory Orchestra and the Collegium Musicum of Bergen, Norway.
The duo’s program at the Cape Cod Museum of Art will last about an hour, with refreshments to follow. Admission is $12 for museum members, $15 for nonmembers. Reservations are recommended and may be made by calling 508- 385-4477, ext. 15.
