Likely inspired by the scene of Rostropovich at the fall of the Berlin Wall, 1991 Auburn graduate Charlie Wright, president of the board of the Auburn Community Orchestra, set up his cello by the Toomer’s Oaks late Friday morning for an impromptu performance of “War Eagle,” the Auburn Alma Mater, the “1812 Overture,” “Memories,” you name it.

What is the song featured starting at 2:08? I am going to smack myself when I find out. I should know this.
Beautiful! Enjoyed the music and the sentiment. Thanks!
Thanks for posting, cello man! This was a lovely & meaningful gesture. The oaks have been a treasure to all of us and we will miss them.
@ Mark. That’s the prelude to Bach’s cello suite no. 1 in G major.
I want the audio of his “War Eagle” for my ringtone!!
