Cellist Wendy Warner

LIVE Recital on Friday, 12:00 PM

“Warner’s expressive playing and glowing tone were everywhere a pleasure.”

—The New York Times

At fourteen, she was featured in a WTTW broadcast as soloist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. You might see her in Paris doing the Brahms Double with Anne-Sophie Mutter, or touring Japan, but this Chicagoan still makes time for free lunch-time concerts in her home town. This week, she’s playing with her longtime recital partner Irina Nuzova.
