What musical instrument(s) do you play?

Cello & Trumpet. And composing & arranging if you count that :)

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) any & all, all the way up the fingerboard. b) no, but I did until August. c) on the cello, "Haydn's Concerto in C Major", but I just finished arranging "Somebody That I Used to Know" for you guys :)

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

a) extensive; classical and jazz. b) also extensive, many genres, have organized and composed/arranged for a couple too. c) about 5 years, directing/organizing for the last 2.

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

You might consider introducing some basic music theory concepts at meetups. I got into composition after learning the basics of composition and theory in regular music classes/orchestras and picked it up and taught myself from there. Maybe some group members would enjoy learning more about how composition works and try some out themselves!

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

Never (I'm not local) :( But I'll be there in spirit!

Introduction

I'm a Cellist/Trumpeter/Co­mposer/Arranger/Web Developer from Portland, Oregon. I obviously can't participate directly in BCP meetups, but I'm sharing my love and knowledge of cello ensembles to create new compositions and arrangements for BCP!
