This Thursday my school P.S. 321 will suffer a most mellifluous invasion of cello. This is all in preparation of Friday's Neighborhood Classics performance by Zuill Bailey of selections from J.S. Bach's Cello Suites.
Now I've mention this before, but cello is my favorite string instrument so I'm going to enjoy this musical assault thoroughly. A number of cellists will be coming to the school to perform selections from the Cello Suites for various classes throughout the school day (I'll even have some come by my kindergarten music classes; the kids will be excited to see and hear the cello especially since we are talking about different family of instruments at the moment and since my cello skills are a little...rusty, it will be great having a professional demo rather than me). Now some of the cellists coming to the school are old friends: such as Jody Redhage (who has a great new album out) or Eric Schoen-Rene (who was at some of the first Numinous rehearsals many, many years ago); one, Laura Metcalf, I know of, but haven't worked with yet. The rest are new to me, but I look forward to meeting: Sang Yhee, Patrick McGuire, Alex Green, Caleigh Drane, Analissa C. Martinez, Audrey Nadeau, Claire Bryant, Alice Levine, Karen Ouzounian, Martha Siegel, Kieran Campbell, as well as a few cello students from the Special Music School.
This is going to be a fun event and if I have a chance I'll try to post a few photos from the cello surge...
