The Event:

Eugene Friesen with the Woodfest Symphonia 


Four-time Grammy Award-winner Eugene Friesen is active internationally as a concert and recording artist, composer, conductor and teacher. Eugene has worked and recorded with such diverse artists as Dave Brubeck, Martin Sexton, Toots Thielemans, Betty Buckley, Dar Williams, Will Ackerman, and Dream Theater.  

Eugene's passion for improvised music has been featured in concerts all over the world with the Paul Winter Consort and with Trio Globo (Friesen, Howard Levy and Glen Velez). He appeared on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion" playing with Keillor and superstar soprano Renée Fleming and has performed as a soloist at the International Cello Festival in Manchester, England; Rencontres d'Ensembles de Violoncelles in Beauvais, France; the World Cello Congress in Baltimore, Maryland; and the Rio International Cello Encounter in Rio de Janeiro.  

The Woodfest Symphonia is a chamber string ensemble comprised of players from around the state, many are seasoned improvisers, and all are comfortable with a wide range of styles and sounds. Created to perform at Symphony in the Flint Hills fall event, Woodfest, they perform the last Saturday of September each year at Camp Wood as part of Woodfest.
