July 2004 we held our first cello day for many years
in West Glamorgan. Over 60 cellists attended, ages ranged
between 8 and 18 and all abilities from beginners right
through to Grade 8 plus. We started the day playing
as a "cello orchestra" altogether rehearsing
pieces that had been specially arranged to cater for
all standards and tastes.
lunch we held some group workshops with all the cellists
seperating into smaller ensembles according to ability
to rehearse pieces again arranged especially for each
group. We finished the day off with an informal concert
with each smaller group performing and the "cello
orchestra" performing the finale for a very appreciative
audience of parents and friends.
