Lynn Harrell is a Grammy Award-winning American classical cellist who has played as a special guest with orchestras in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco. Harrell received his training at the Curtis Institute of Music and the Juilliard School before going on to play with the Cleveland Orchestra, the Royal Academy of Music in London and teaching at the USC Thorton School of Music. Harrell currently tours the globe as a soloist, chamber musician, conductor and teacher. 

Harrell and the Philharmonic Orchestra will perform Overture to Benvenuto Cellini from Hector Berlioz, Don Juan from Richard Strauss and Cello Concerto in B Minor from Antonin Dvorak.

The Philharmonic Orchestra, directed by Kory Katseanes, plays compositions from all musical periods, focusing on the romantic period but also including 20th- and 21st-century music. Nearly 100 of the university's finest musicians bring these great symphonic works to life.

The performance is sponsored by BRAVO! Professional Performing Arts at BYU, the university's concert series that plays host to many world-renowned guest artists from across the globe.
