Cello & Bass Day

Cello Day
Saturday, October, 28, 2023
9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
College of Creative Arts

Join us in Morgantown for an exciting and fun day of low strings nerdom! Bass clef pals will unite and form an awesome ensemble of both cellos and basses. Get ready for some low string rumbling! If you need some new inspiration, are tired of practicing by yourself, or want to up-level your musicianship, please join us to celebrate making music together. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in group workshops (separated by instrument), play with the cello and bass choir, and enjoy fellowship with other bass clef enthusiasts.  New this year: more advanced separate cello choir and bass choir music, in addition to the full ensemble.  Come make new friends, improve your technique, and leave playing better than you ever have!


Please note: If you would like a private lesson with Dr. Ellis or Dr. Kohn, those will be offered on Friday, October 27 or after the workshop on Saturday, October 28 for an additional fee.  Please indicate your interest in this on the registration form, and Dr. Ellis will be in touch to make arrangements.
