May Boulder Cello Project's "Cello Rock Band"


Location visible to members


For intermediate/advanced players.

Come join us in a relaxed environment to play some cello rock ensemble music!

These arrangements are not for a mixed level ensemble (like our normal play-ins) and is on the "more difficult" side.

This playin may explore cello technique, musicality, music theory and ensemble playing using cello ensemble arrangements of rock and popular music!

Limited space available!

Some music will be passed out as they cannot be posted online. However, if you would like to take home the music to practice, we will require a $15 deposit which will be returned when you return the music. You must pick up or arrange for mailing.

We will be playing strictly non-classical cello music.


Piazzolla's LiberTango (posted online) Whiter Shade of Pale (sightread) Lady Gaga's Bad Romance (posted online) Additional music TBD On the short list for tentative sight-reading:

Nothing Else Matters Cello Quartet (Metallica) Nights in White Satin Sunshine of my Love Viva La Vida (Coldplay)

1:30 PM - 2:00 PM This is 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.

2:00 PM - 4:30 PM "Cello Rock." Time is flexible and you may stay longer or leave earlier depending on your schedule.

Moderator: Psyche Dunkhase.
