Cello Day

Cello Day
October 23, 2021
9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Canady Creative Arts Center

Join us in Morgantown to indulge your inner cello nerd!  Tired of practicing by yourself?  Please join us to celebrate making music together.  This year's event features WVU Alum Ashley Driscoll, leading our large cello choir ensemble.  Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a group workshop, play with the cello choir, and enjoy fellowship with other cello enthusiasts.  Come make new cello friends, improve your technique, and shake off the pandemic cello-dust!


Please note: There are a limited number of spots available for a solo masterclass opportunity. Please make your masterclass request on the registration form!  We will try to honor as many requests as possible, but cannot guarantee.  


Due to Covid precautions, the event is limited to ages 12 and up.  Appropriate for students, amateurs and professionals of all ages that have been playing for at least one year and/or can read music. If you have questions about participating in the workshop, please contact Erin Ellis (erin.ellis@mail.wvu.edu). All participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.


Register today for an unforgettable cello experience! 


Music for cello choir will be available for download by October 1.


Please note that all current Covid-19 University guidelines will be enforced; masks and vaccines are strongly encouraged.
