Cello Springs Fest to return; volunteers, participants sought
- Published: December 11, 2017
The Cello Springs Festival will return to Yellow Springs in 2018, Jan. 3–13, during which time cello music will be performed in both public spaces and homes in the village. Cello Springs Festival 2018 will bring two core-group cello quartets, a young artist apprentice, and some of their support crew to the village for 10 days of rehearsals, concerts, workshops, jam sessions, technique classes, public outreach and “artist-incubator” time.
The festival is co-organized by cellists Miriam Liske-Doorandish, Chiara Enderle and Lisa Liske-Doorandish, who have long visited the village to perform in the Friends Music Camp benefit concert. Lisa has taught at Friends Music Camp for years, and Miriam and Chiara met at the camp in their youth. The first iteration of the Cello Springs Festival was held in January of 2017.
Announcements about public performances will appear in the YS News in January. Area cellists who are interested in being involved with the festival, either to perform in ensemble pieces or to participate in workshops, jams or individual cello lessons are asked to contact the festival’s co-organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-392-4544.
