Cellist Zuill Bailey makes his West Virginia debut this evening with the Wheeling Symphony performing Tchaikovsky's Variations on a Rococo Theme. I had the opportunity to interview this artist earlier this week. We began our conversation by talking about his musical background and his first "run-in" with the cello.

His education continued with studies at the Peabody Conservatory and then to Julliard. Bailey feels that he has been given many opportunities, something he feels the need to give back both to community and to students. Even his concerts he describes as "a way of sharing."
