Julie Albers grew up in a family where everyone was a musician: Dad played the piano, Mom taught violin, and each of her sisters mastered a string instrument. But Julie emerged in her own right when she starting winning the big prizes in France, Munich and South Korea. Cellist Julie Albers kicks off the Masterworks series with the Las Vegas Philharmonic this weekend. She and conductor David Itkin talk about performing Beethoven on the cello, and why all Julie's cellos are at least 100 years old.
Cellist Julie Albers performs with the Las Vegas Philharmonic on Saturday, September 11, at 7 p.m. at UNLV's Artemus Ham Hall.
