What’s happening this month at the Cello Museum? Find out here.
It’s December, and we have a packed schedule at the Cello Museum.
Simple Gifts Cello Project
Cellists of all levels (from beginners through professionals) are invited to participate in our Simple Gifts video project.
There is no fee to participate, but we suggest that everyone who takes part donates directly to Rise Against Hunger. Gather your friends and family together in a team to support your participation in the project through donations to Rise Against Hunger.
We have extended the deadline, and videos are due by 16 January 2024.
New York Women Composers Spotlight: Sarah Meneely-Kyder
We showcase one member of the New York Women Composers (NYWC) who has composed music for the cello in the second week of every month. This month, we’ll highlight Sarah Meneely-Kyder and her piece Sweethearts for unaccompanied cello and spoken female voice. Learn more about this wonderful composer and her cello piece.
Catch up on the other articles in the series.
Postcards from Erica
In the last week of December, Erica Lessie will send us the ninth installment in her series featuring unaccompanied cello works by Hispanic and Latino/Latina composers. While you wait, you can explore her postcards highlighting works by Black composers, her series spotlighting women composers, or revisit all of her postcards.
Celebrate International Cello Day
Our biggest shared holiday of the year is coming up soon – International Cello Day on 29 December. How are you celebrating? This year, we are celebrating with a photo contest (see below) and an article later this month.
A Photo Contest and a Giveaway
How do you Cello Museum? Send us a photo of you with your favorite Cello Museum item (maybe from our new Bach Suite Life or Simple Gifts collections) and enter into a drawing for a $50 gift card to the Cello Museum store! Full contest rules are in the September Curator’s Corner.
Thanks to cellist and author Janet Horvath, one lucky winner will receive a signed copy of her memoir, The Cello Still Sings: A Generational Story of the Holocaust and of the Transformative Power of Music, and a Cello Museum T-shirt. The prize drawing will take place on 18 December. Good luck!
