Cellist Roger Emanuels lives in California and performs as a recitalist and lecturer. He performed with Symphony Silicon Valley, San Jose Symphony and the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra for many years.
He maintains a cello teaching studio in Santa Cruz and offers classes at the Sunnyvale Senior Center which preview the rich musical activity in Santa Clara Valley.
Roger's interest in local history has led him to co-author with his historian father, George Emanuels, Schools & Scows of Early Sonoma, a look at life and commerce in Sonoma, California, from the Gold Rush to about 1900.
Song of Survival is a radio program that is still available for broadcast. Please contact me for availability.
When not in California, Roger is often found exploring remote areas of Patagonia in South America.
