Free- Jose Cueto in Concert

Violinist José Miguel Cueto has over 40 years experience leading orchestras in the United States and abroad. His multi-talented skills as concertmaster, soloist, and chamber musician make him a much sought after artist. Deeply committed to the process of education, Mr. Cueto shares his expertise as violin teacher, chamber ensemble/orchestra coach, and lecturer in studio and master class settings.
The program at Bishop Cummins will include Bach, Ysaye, Kreisler, Paganini and Piazzolla. Mr. Cueto will be using a different bow for each piece of music for the audience’s enjoyment of hearing how each bow impacts the beauty of the violin’s tone.
