  • This location is shown only to members


Pine Street Church - 1237 Pine Street, Boulder, CO 80302 

We will be in the large room in the basement called the Fellowship Hall. 

Parking: Pine Street Church is located at the northwest corner of 13th and Pine Street in downtown Boulder, one block north of the Boulderado Hotel. There are off-street parking if you can find it too. Parking is also available at the City of Boulder parking garage facility located west of Broadway on the south side of Spruce—two blocks from the church.

Join us in a relaxed environment to play some cello ensemble music together. We'll have a good mixture of beginners to advanced cellists.

6:00 PM - 6:30 PM Food, Drinks & Social. For members who would like to eat some snacks and meet other members, or warm up, before playing. This is not required. Members can simply show up at the scheduled play-in time.

6:30 PM - 9:00 PM Cello Choir. Time is flexible and you may stay longer or leave earlier depending on your schedule. We will take a break midway through the play-in, and members are free to leave during break time if you have other commitments and cannot stay for the entire 2 hour play-in.

This meeting will be for all levels, whether advanced or playing in a group for the first time, and will be led by an experienced cello teacher. We will work on playing and practicing together, dynamics and speed, and having fun!

    I did not know how it would go with fewer people, but with the willing participants and Psyche's direction it was a great session.

    Any one live out in Longmont that would be willing to carpool to this (or any future playins) with a fellow BCP member? :)

    Sorry, can't make it. I'm playing in the pit for Sweeny Todd in Longmont - http://www.longmonttheatre.org/201314/show5.html - as does Lexi, who some of you have met. Performance are this and the next two weekends. You should all come - it's community theater, but I think it's going to be a really good show

    I was hoping to make it on 4/25, but it conflicts with the visit of a friend coming in from out of state.

    Just wondering if the music is posted for this play-in yet. Also, I just signed up for the Chase the Music concert but can't figure out how to download the music. Help please.

      Hi Roberta, I just emailed the Chase Concert password and website link to concert participants. Let me know if you are able to log in. I should have April's music posted by this Saturday. Thanks! :)

    Hi All, Sorry but I can't join you on April 25th. I'll be attending a wedding rehearsal for a wedding my quartet is playing on April 26th. Have fun!

    I'm on a temporary sabbatical from music playing because I had to have arm surgery. I miss the BCP and my cello and can't wait to get better and join you all again!

      Oh no!! :( Hope you're doing alright. Here's to a speedy recovery!

    Again I'll try but the likelihood of me having to cancel is high due to work hours and commute during the week.
