Two Tracks for Cello Ensemble
Do you like to come to cello-related events like these just for a day of fun, or are you a driven, serious cello-playing machine? This year we will accommodate both types of attendees:
If you would like to show up on the day of the event with no need to bring anything but a cello in your hand and a smile on your face, choose the “simplice” option. The parts that you will play will be sight-readable, so that they can be prepared to concert readiness in one day.
If you are a serious cello player that loves to practice and enjoys a challenge, choose the “con fuoco” option and register by April 21. You will be sent repertoire to prepare during the month before the event. You will get to play the melody. You will play in treble clef. You will play alongside other hotshots. Oh yeah.
Simplice Registration (April 22 - May 18): $50
Early Bird Simplice and "Con fuoco" attendees (before April 22): $40
Bring-A-Friend Discount (before April 22): $30
Returning attendees can receive a $10 discount off their fee by bringing one new attendee with them this year to Cello Fest. Both the returning attendee and the new attendee will receive the discount when they list each others name on the registration and register by April 22th. Use promo code 2FRIEND10 at check out. Discount cannot be applied after you register and pay. You will be charged $20 if listed friend does not attend.
The event fee includes lunch, instruction and insurance. The day’s events will also include a session on the history of cello making, a reading session of newly published works for cello, and a session on the Popper etudes by Benjamin Whitcomb. In addition, there will be strings and instruments to try out over the lunch break.
