Matej Cip Concert and Scholarly Presentation on Cimbal

May 18 @ 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

We are delighted to present the upcoming concert, “With the Cimbalom Across the Ocean,” featuring Matěj Číp, a cimbalist of grand dreams and determination.

From his early days in the picturesque village of Hodslavice, nestled between the Lachian and Wallachian borders of Czechia, to the global stages across continents, Matěj has cultivated his talent from early childhood. This concert promises a unique journey through the story of the cimbalom and its boundless possibilities that have opened the world of music to Matěj. At this concert, Matěj will demonstrate how the cimbalom transcends genres,
styles, and cultures. Audiences can look forward to performances and narratives about adventurous studies worldwide. The uniqueness of this concert lies in the blend of tradition and innovation.

Matěj will showcase how the cimbalom acts as a bridge between cultures, opening limitless possibilities in musical expression. This concert promises a rich and extraordinary musical experience, featuring everything from traditional folk melodies and classical repertoire written for the cimbalom, to transcriptions of pieces originally composed for other instruments, and even modern musical tendencies.

Prepare for an evening full of surprises, where each piece of music becomes part of a larger narrative—the story of the cimbalom, a story that transcends borders and connects worlds. “With the Cimbalom Across the Ocean” is not merely a concert; it is a celebration of music, creativity, and the endless possibilities that music presents.
