Why a cello choir?
The idea of a cello choir spawned from both a need and a want. Cellos are large instruments, not exactly the type of instrument that you would want to carry everyday around school. It’s intimidating to the onlooker but within it’s fierce size is a beautifully deep and mellow tone that is just waiting to be expressed.
Unfortunately, there are just not enough cellists in our district and I wanted more students to give it a chance. At the same time, I just wanted to create a group for us cellists to belong and make awesome music together.
The Cello Choir is open to any 7-12th grade students that are interested in learning or are already playing the cello. My goal is to use this ensemble to spread how awe-inspiring this instrument can be, and hopefully influence the younger students in our community to give it a try.
Provide your own cello and we will provide everything else including rehearsal space, music, and lessons.
We meet at Nogales High School every Monday in Room T-9 from 6:30-7:30 PM starting October 1st, 2018.
