The American Music Festival of Carteret County is proud to begin its 28th season on Saturday, September 9, in Morehead City with Amit Peled and his five cello “Cello Gang”. This concert will be a unique collaboration between Mr. Peled, his cello students and the audience.  Mr. Peled says that “creating music with my very own flesh and blood students has been truly special to me.  Witnessing how they blossom on stage, engage with the public and create magical moments has given me the greatest pleasure…”  Part of the audience experience will be exposure to Amit Peled’s instrument, the 1733 Goffriller Cello.  This Cello is one of the most classic and beautiful musical instruments in the world.  This instrument was used by Pablo Casals and was loaned to Amit by Casal’s widow, Marta, so the instrument could be brought to life again.
