BMC Night Beat is Back


Bellingham Music Club welcomes WWU professor, virtuoso cellist John Friesen, with pianist Rebecca Mañalac and Grammy award-winner Ben Mink (guitar and violin) in a program of works by Bach and Haydn, in addition to shorter, brilliant, encore-style pieces by various composers. Known for his exciting and passionate performances, beauty of tone and depth of expression, Friesen has appeared in New York, Washington, Moscow, Montreal and Tokyo. “He plays with obvious enjoyment and commitment, letting Bach speak through his strings.” (Seattle Times). Aside from classical music, Friesen is active in the fields of popular music, recording cello solos on k.d. lang’s album “Ingenue” and movies such as Ben Kingsley’s “Fifty Dead Men Walking" and Amy Grant’s “A Song from the Heart.” Tickets for BMC Night Beat are on sale on, at Village Books, Quist Violins, and at the door.
