Philip has designed a true FitC Cellobration for us! This is going to be the perfect way to kick off the July 4th weekend in a pandemic world. We are delighted to have you join us! Gerrie

Thank you all so much for coming out to last night's performance, I hope you enjoyed and found inspiration in the music you heard!

Quite ironically, I realized (after telling Howard that I'd had no major technical goofs) that I had a MAJOR technical goof last night, and that the backing track to the Steve Reich wasn't being properly sent out the live stream! I'm so sorry for this, and I re-recorded the piece so that you can hear it (I promise it's 800% better!). Please enjoy :

If you're interested in hearing more unique programs of cello music, my next Groupmuse is on July 23, and will be outlining my musical upbringing in California - fun music and stories will abound!

Great concert - and thank you for the re-sharing of the Steve Reich piece. The live performance seemed a bit minimalist :~)
I've tried to pay for the concert, twice, but it apparently didn't work, since I didn't get a receipt. ???

Valerie, thank you! Indeed, the Reich was a bit...over minimalistic!

I believe portal closed 24 hours after the event, so if you were just trying that would explain it!
