Program

Mosa Tsay Cello
Guilherme Nardelli Monegatto Cello

Cello, there! We're two cello friends who will perform cello duos from the era before a cellist invented the endpin - when cellists held their instruments off the floor using just their knees. According to folklore, a cellist's protruding belly prevented him from holding the instrument properly, so he invented the endpin.

Hi, I'm trying to add plus 1 to my reservation, but it's not letting me - just wanted to give you a heads up! Thanks :)

Excited for you to join tonight for musings in Fort Greene!

Heads up there will be ample floor space for seating but any chair or raised seating will be at a minimum.
