Many students participated in a practice challenge this semester, tracking each day of practice in a calendar. The top-practicing student would get the opportunity to attend a cello concert with Megan.
The fabulous Jo-Jo Kasten, an 8th grader at Monarch K-8 in Louisville, practiced 81 days from September through the end of November. Wow! Congratulations!
Jo-Jo and I got to attend a house concert last night featuring Ben Sollee. We were blown away by his enormous range of skills: singing, picking, bowing, chopping, plucking, strumming, etc (listen to free streaming here), and check him out below. We had a great time and can't wait to discover more cellists coming to town soon.
I just wanted to pass along some info for concerts you might want to attend this week:
Thursday, October 29
Front Range Youth Symphony Fall Concert
Go see some of the cellists in our studio...and see what it might be like to play with these awesome orchestras. Auditions will be in May for next year's lineup.
Saturday, October 31
Silver Ainomae, Principal Cellist of Colorado Symphony Orchestra
Englewood Civic Center
This is his first Denver-area solo recital...and student tickets are only $5. And with a name like Silver, who would miss this? Don't miss out on this opportunity!
