A cellist who studies with Clara Kim at the Juilliard School of Music, Pre-College Division, Daniel will be playing the Cello Suite #4 in E flat Major, Prelude, at the concert on January 20.

The Musical Club of Hartford, Inc., is a non-profit Connecticut organization celebrating its 122nd anniversary this year. It was founded by a small group of music lovers who met frequently to perform for each other. Over the past century it has grown to almost 300 memberes, who meet to perform or listen to performances of classical music. Membership is open to performers or to those who simply enjoy classical music, providing a network for musicians from the Greater Hartford area.
