Cellist, organist to perform Oct. 22 at Piedmont College
Rebecca Hepplewhite and Julian Collings of Svyati Duo will perform Oct. 22 at Piedmont College.

Sounds from the 17th to the 20th centuries will ring from the rafters in the chapel at Piedmont College as the Svyati Duo of England play the cello and organ in a concert.

Cellist Rebecca Hepplewhite and organist Julian Collings will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22, at 992 Central Ave., in Demorest.

Since forming Svyati Duo in 2009, Hepplewhite  and Collings have gained international critical acclaim, for their concert performances and commercial CD releases. Heralded as ‘exemplary’ performers by Fanfare Magazine, their concert engagements have taken them to venues throughout Europe, the United States and Asia.

Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Piedmont students, faculty, and staff are admitted free.

For the Piedmont concert, Svyati Duo will perform works by Dieterich Buxtehude, J.S. Bach, Joseph Jongen, Joseph Rheinberger, Sofia Gubaidulina, Kurt Wiklander, Russell Hepplewhite, Max Bruch and Astor Piazzolla.

Svyati Duo has recorded three CDs on the Regent Records label, all of which received unanimous, critical acclaim and have since been featured on radio stations both in the UK and overseas. Forthcoming projects include a DVD recording, a number of concerts in Japan and further U.S. tours.
