It’s FINALLY HAPPENING (knock on wood). After being postponed 3…4(?) times Kendra will finally be performing the Haydn Cello Concerto in D major with the @oakvillesymphony this coming July!!! If you aren’t able to make the trip to Oakville, the concert will also be available virtually. "I hope to see you there! Performing with this orchestra in my home town will bring back so many memories from when I was growing up, playing in the cello section as a young artist. I’m also very lucky that my mom, @daphnegrittani will be leading the cello section for this program."
Kendra Grittani is a talented and experienced young cellist. She started playing at the age of four, and completed her Bachelors in Performance from the Schulich School of Music at McGill University in 2015 as well as her Masters in Cello Performance at McGill University in 2018. Kendra completed her studies with accomplished cellist, chamber musician, and professor, Elizabeth Dolin. Her past teachers include Paul Widner, teacher at the University of Toronto and Glenn Gould School, and Juno and Grammy award-nominated cellist Professor Matt Haimovitz.
