The Lavender/Shell Duo

The Lavender/Shell Duo: Something unexpected comes to your stage…

What makes the Lavender/Shell Duo right for your concert series?

It’s their synthesis of peerless Classical technique and a repertoire of timeless American popular standards.

It’s a unique evening of alluring and sophisticated music that awaits your audience: imagine listening to the gorgeous melodies and syncopated swinging rhythms of George Gershwin and Cole Porter, Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, all singing through the voice of a 400-year-old Italian cello!

It’s the delight your audience will feel hearing their favorite songs from Broadway, Hollywood and Tin Pan Alley presented with flair, sophistication and wry wit, all in an elegant, inviting and congenial chamber music format.

With bass and drums providing the rhythmic engine, cellist Roger Shell (renowned orchestral soloist) and pianist Scott Lavender (Musical Director for Johnny Mathis) take concertgoers on a musical journey through the Golden Age of the American Songbook, daring their audience not to hum along!

A night with the Lavender/Shell Duo is one full of lively music and engaging personalities, captivating their audience with soaring melodies and pianistic virtuosity. Roger and Scott keep the evening bubbling and memorable with fascinating stories behind the selections and the humorous anecdotes that everyone loves to hear.

Presenters: searching for the perfect light entertainment to broaden your offerings and please new audiences: Look no further!

The Lavender/Shell Duo: Serious chamber music of the unexpectedly swinging kind!
