Shell Point Retirement Community will continue its 2017 Summer Concert Series with an engaging performance from Wild Coffee Duo at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 7 at the Social Center on The Island at Shell Point.
Wild Coffee Duo formed in 2015 by pianist Abbey Allison and cellist Susie Kelly. The classically trained music group presents an engaging repertoire that draws on a variety of musical styles. The versatile pair is dedicated to presenting chamber music to audiences in Southwest Florida.
Allison holds a dual degree in piano performance and string education from Ithaca College. She has worked with both student and professional musicians, ranging from national competition winners and contemporary music specialists to performers on live radio.
Kelly is a member of the Palm Beach Opera Orchestra and Southwest Florida Symphony, where she served as principal cellist for seven years. Kelly received a bachelor’s degree in cello performance and master’s in chamber music from the University of South Florida.
The duo will bring a traditional sound and intonation, combined with Parisian flair, to the Shell Point stage. Tickets for Wild Coffee Duo are now available for $20 each and can be purchased online at www.shellpoint.org/concerts or by calling 239-454-2067.
