I Heart Cello Day Coming to Washburn University Feb. 14

02/06/15 07:02 am CST
"They’ll also get an opportunity to play great music and meet new cello friends"

Cellists of all ages and abilities will gather at Washburn University’s White Concert Hall on Valentine’s Day to share their love of the instrument and make music together.

The public is invited to attend a free concert at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 14 at White Concert Hall.

Sponsored by the Washburn Department of Music, the first I Heart Cello Day will bring together cellists age 11 through adult. The musicians will participate in specialized instruction based on their ability level, instructed by Washburn music faculty members and students in the Washburn Cello Studio, a group of cello performance majors. In addition to adult community members, the Topeka, Lawrence and Olathe school districts will be represented by students and orchestra directors.

Registration still is open for I Heart Cello Day. Participants will receive music upon registration. Participation is free and those interested are asked to contact Erinn Renyer at 785.670.1511. A pizza lunch and a T-shirt will be provided to all participants.

“They’ll also get an opportunity to play great music and meet new cello friends,” said Renyer, Washburn’s director of string studies, who teaches cello.

Note to editors: While participants are arriving at 8:30 a.m., the best time for media to visit is after lunch, at 1:30 p.m., for the concert’s dress rehearsal. Washburn Cello Studio student ambassadors will be on hand to direct you to Erinn Renyer from the White Concert Hall lobby.
