Daniel Lelchuk is the Assistant Principal cellist of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and New Orleans Opera Association, as well as member of Lyrica Baroque. Recently, Daniel visited WTUL to discuss his lifelong love affair with the cello, his career so far, and his association with the award-winning Lyrica Baroque. The interview features live recordings of the ensemble performing Friedrich Fasch’s “Trio Sonata in D minor” and movements 3 & 4 of Antonio Vivaldi’s “Cello Sonata No. 6 in B Flat” at St. Louis Cathedral, June 2014.

On Sunday, May 31, Lyrica Baroque presents Baroque & Beyond, a program that highlights operatic arias and unique arrangements of instrumentals from the Baroque and Classical periods. Members of the chamber ensemble also include nationally acclaimed soprano Sarah Jane McMahon, oboist Jaren Atherholt, bassoonist and contrabassoonist Ben Atherholt, violinist Joe Meyer, and keyboardist Angela Park.
