Join us and members of the NYPhil Cello Section for CelloBelloNYC!

Join us for live music and libation at the home of Mark and Lucy Ptashne to support our Annual Appeal in celebration of our beginning as a nonprofit.

ALEXEI GONZALES of the New York Philharmonic will be joined by colleagues Patrick Jee, Sumire Kudo, Ru-Pei Yeh and Principal Cellist Carter Brey of the NYPhil cello section as they serenade a select group enthusiasts and supporters.

Paul Katz will co-host this event and lead some discussion on our live-streamed coverage of the event, a rare opportunity to hear selections of all-cello solo and chamber music with a stellar cast of musicians.


Alexei Yupanqui Gonzales was appointed to the cello section of the New York Philharmonic in November 2012. He has served as the principal cellist of the Rhode Island Philharmonic and the Boston Lyric Opera. He has also been a member of the Boston Ballet Orchestra and has performed with the Boston Symphony, Boston Pops, A Far Cry Chamber Orchestra, Emmanuel Music under the late Craig Smith, and the Bach Ensemble with harpsichordist John Gibbons.

An avid chamber musician, Mr. Gonzales has performed in various concert venues including Jordan Hall, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Seattle Town Hall, Currier Museum of Art, and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
