Featuring music for cello and piano influenced by folk music from around the world.

 From the fjords of Norway to the bullfights in Spain; from the mountains of Romania to the tango halls of Argentina, you will be transported around the world and hear the music of the people come alive!

Franklin Keel is an Asheville favorite, having grown up in the region before leaving to get his degree at the prestigious Eastman School. He is currently the Assistant Principal of the Asheville Symphony and a member of the Opal String Quartet. He also performs with the Gypsy Funk group, Sirius B.

AmiciMusic is a non-profit chamber music organization based in Asheville, NC and Baltimore, MD, founded by pianist and Artistic Director Daniel Weiser. It is dedicated to performing chamber music in intimate venues such as private homes and non-traditional spaces, including bars, libraries, Churches, retirement homes, and more.

AmiciMusic, meaning “music among friends,” seeks to break down barriers between performers and audience through brief discussions of each composer on their programs and by promoting a relaxed and informal atmosphere at concerts in order to encourage new concert-goers to enjoy the energy of the performances and the spirit of community and camaraderie.
