What musical instrument(s) do you play?

Cello

ALL levels of players are welcome! Describe your playing ability: a) which positions are you comfortable with; b) are you presently taking lessons (if not, when was your last one)?; c) what was the last piece you worked on?

a) First position, but am now working on shifting and extensions b) Yes - two teachers: Adam Riggs & Clayton Vaughn c) Suzuki Book 1 Minuet in C and No 2

What is your experience playing with a) orchestras; b) chamber ensembles; c) cello choir?

a) None - there aren't any orchestras for adult beginners locally b) None - dido c) None - dido

Do you have any particular topics of interest to cellists that you would like to hear addressed in our meetup?

I've only been in one recital since I started to learn how to play the cello. I would like to get more experience in performing in front of people (thus the Holiday Recitals) which should be fun! Also, possibly playing alternative cello music, e.g. Jazz, Blues, Fiddle, Celtic, etc. I have TONS of music but am not able to play most of them yet, but I would love to share any of my music with members.

We meet monthly. How often do you expect you will be able to attend a play-in over the next twelve months?

All twelve! :).

Introduction

Hello, I started playing the cello a year ago and completely LOVE it! I'm at the point where I want to play with other cellists or musicians, but there's a definite lack of groups available in my area, which I'm hoping to remedy - fingers crossed!
