Zuill Bailey wins Grammys!

ZUILL BAILEY -- Artistic Director of Bach Cello Suites Workshop -- won multiple Grammy Awards in Los Angeles Sunday for his brilliant work on "Tales of Hemingway," a cello concerto written for Zuill by Michael Daugherty.

The entire Bach Cello Suites Workshop family, including faculty members, participating cellists and board members, salutes Zuill for this hard-earned and richly-deserved recogniton.

Zuill won Grammys in the "Best Solo Performance" category as well as for "Best Contemporary Classical Composition" and "Best Compendium" for "Tales of Hemingway" which was recorded at its premiere concert performance by the Nashville Symphony under the baton of music director Giancarlo Guerrero for release on the Naxos label.

As he accepted a Grammy statuette Sunday evening, Zuill approached the microphone, smiled broadly and said to the applauding audience, "They don't teach you what it feels like to be in this position."

Zuill thanked Daugherty for his masterful work which "evokes the turbulent life, adventures, and literature of American author and journalist Ernest Hemingway."

And he tipped his hat to Guerrero and the Nashville Symphony for "this live performance, that I'll never forget, that taught me to fight fear."

The Bach Cello Suites Workshop family will honor Zuill and celebrate his Grammy success with him when he returns for the 2017 edition of the Workshop August 13-19 in Albany.
