Concert cellist Dr. Larissa Fedoryka accompanied by pianist Saide Hoyt will play a benefit concert of classical music on July 23 inside the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, 415 E. Green Ave.

According to a press release sent out by the Southwest Indian Foundation, Fedoryka is a classically trained cellist who began her cello career at 3 years old. As a child, she joined her nine siblings who toured as a classical chamber ensemble called “The Fedoryka Family Players,” performing in venues nationally, which culminated in multiple performances at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as well as a performance at The Wolf Trap International Children’s Festival.

More recently, Fedoryka has made the transition to world music, touring with various artists such as Marco Antonio Solis, Croatia’s former pop artist Tajci, the increasingly well-known Celtic/Americana band - Scythian, and most recently with Mexico’s pop diva Gloria Trevi.

In 2010 Fedoryka was hired by The Harmony Project - The LA Symphony’s program to enrich inner city youth through music. Here Larissa arranged pop songs for orchestral music and oversaw two end-of-the-year recitals. She now resides in Santa Barbara where she is pursuing her MM/DMA in performance under Jennifer Kloetzel.

These world-class musicians will lead concert goers in listening to classical music as it was intended, with explanations and listening tips to help listeners experience the vivid tapestry hidden within each piece.

Admission is free, although donations in support of the Saint Kateri Rosary Walk and shrine will be accepted. Doors open at 5:30 pm and the 90-minute performance begins at 6:00 pm.
