Cello Fury - The Inaugural Concert of the “Marjorie Simonds Music Series at Ben Avon”
Sunday, September 30th,at 4:00 PM

Cello Fury is a rarity in the music world:  three classically trained cellists and a rock drummer performing high-energy original music in venues ranging from concert halls to rock
clubs.  Appealing to a diverse audience across age groups and musical interests sets Cello Fury apart from your average rock band.  Continually developing their own unique style of 
cello rock music, cellists Simon Cummings, Ben Muño and Nicole Myers along with drummer David Throckmorton unleash vitality and rhythmic drive in their music and dare to venture past
classical expectations.  The band's collective experiences have allowed them to perform on radio and television, in intimate club settings, and for audiences as large as 67,000 throughout
12 states and abroad.  Cello Fury's self-titled album of original music was released in 2011 along with a trilogy of music videos (view them on the band's YouTube channel,
www.youtube.com/cellofury). The concert will take place in the sanctuary of Community Presbyterian Church of  Ben Avon.  A free-will offering will be received.
