The Pasadena Cello Institute began in 2017 as a comprehensive 6 day music program for young cellists. The schedule is filled with private lessons, monitored individual practice time, cello ensemble coaching sessions, cello orchestra rehearsals and daily performance classes. The program immerses young cellists in a week of music making in a nurturing environment, exploring musical interpretation, developing technique, and enhancing listening, ensemble, rehearsal and performance skills. The week culminates with Master Classes and a Cello Extravaganza Concert of student cello quartets and cello orchestra.
