Cellos and Animals Series – Part II: For the Birds

Cellos and Animals Part II - For the Birds

Last year I put out a call for people to send me their pet photos, anecdotes, and videos, and our Cello Museum family came through in spades. What started as a short article about cellists and animals, particularly cellists and their pets, grew into a mammoth undertaking. (Actually, there were no mammoths – but there were elephants!) So I’ve split the topic of cellists and animals into a multi-part series. Part II is about cellists playing for birds.

Take flight with this next installment later this month. Revisit the first in our series, “A Cellist’s Best Friend – Dogs and Cellos,” here.

Full Circle – Cellos for Trees – The Forest

Cellos for Trees – Full Circle – The Forest premiered last month on the Solstice, and now the race is on to raise enough to plant 10,000 trees. Be sure to share the video with your friends and family and encourage people to make a donation directly through the project page. We have until 10 July 2023 to reach our goal.

You can also continue to help plant trees by purchasing #cellosfortrees items (shirts, hoodies, stickers, mugs, and more) from our online museum shop.
