WELCOME BACK EVERYONE! Let’s get together again, or for the first time so that we can share our LOVE of the CELLO!

For those who are new to CELLOBRATION, we meet once a year to share the joys of the cello with young cellists in Arizona – from those learning for the first time to high-level students.

This year’s event will be on Saturday, November 4th. This is the day when we will come together as a larger cello community to play, learn, play games, and watch performances. Students will work with some of Arizona’s finest and most experienced university, studio cello, and public school teachers. Come join the fun and be a part of history! 

Arrival Time – varies according to level* – 8:00, 9:00, 9:30, and 10:45
