Alcott Cello Recital Features Godes

Dan Allcott will give a cello recital this Tuesday, Jan. 18, at 7:30 p.m. at Tennessee Tech University . Allcott will be accompanied by TTU colleague Catherine Godes on the piano in music by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov. Although more frequently seen as the conductor of both the Bryan Symphony and University Orchestra in Cookeville, Allcott is an accomplished cellist and holds degrees in cello performance from Drake University and the world re-known Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. At IU, he was the first student to be accepted into the doctoral program in both cello and conducting studies. Admission to the event is free.
