Program Type:Garmany Music Series
A lifelong cellist, Ryan Mitten has a unique perspective and style. He plays what you might expect to hear played on a cello (think: Bach and Mozart), but encourages his audience to think bigger. He transports listeners to Hogwarts with the Harry Potter soundtrack then sends them to a galaxy far, far away with recognizable Star Wars repertoire. No two performances are alike as Ryan takes great care in catering to his audience. Music lovers of any age will appreciate his versatility, and do take advantage of his routine offer after for “any requests” (and improvisational skills on the cello). He conjures almost any kind of folk music (bluegrass, Irish, country, the list goes on) and ties it all together with early 20th century sing-along ditties.
Ryan Mitten is a cellist and special education professor who also plays mandolin, guitar, banjo and piano. He is a member of the Pleasantville based folk band Nannyhagan Creek, and a mandolin strumming Living History Interpreter at the Mark Twain House and Museum.
