Nicholas Canellakis debuts as "Performance Today" guest host

Cellist Nicholas Canellakis, known to classical music lovers both for his busy concert career and for his witty web series “Conversations with Nick Canellakis,” reached a national radio audience on June 22, 2017, as guest host of American Public Media’s Performance Today. At the invitation of PT’s regular host, Fred Child, the cellist anchored a two-hour program that featured violinist Hilary Hahn in Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Hillary’s Hoedown—one of 27 encore pieces she has commissioned in recent years—and, in the second hour, spotlighted Canellakis’s own talents as a chamber musician: in the Trio for Violin, Viola and Cello by Jean Francaix, recorded with two Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center colleagues at the Georgia Performing Arts Center.
