Cello & Bass Day

Cello Day
Saturday November 5, 2022
9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
College of Creative Arts

*New this year*

Join us in Morgantown for an exciting and fun day of low strings nerdom! This year, we will be joining forces with our bass clef pals and forming an awesome ensemble of both cellos and basses. Get ready for some low string rumbling! If you need some new inspiration and are tired of practicing by yourself, please join us to celebrate making music together. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a group workshop and/or performance class (separated by instrument), play with the cello and bass choir, and enjoy fellowship with other bass clef enthusiasts. Come make new friends, improve your technique, and shake off the post-pandemic blues!
