a Violoncello Society Event

February 26, 2018 - 6-9 pm

West End Collegiate Church - (245 W. 77th St. NYC)

Calling all cellists and lovers of all things cello, please come and share your love of cello,
cello music, cellists, etc....you know who you are. :)

the VCS has a long, illustrious history as a centerpiece of cello culture and activity here in NYC, and we are rebooting for the next millennium....and we NEED YOU to help move us forward!!!

please come join us on Monday, February 26th for a celebratory party of our distiguished instrument. There will be food, beverages (adult and otherwise) and great music from Bach to the Beatles and beyond.

we would love to have you join us for cello ensembles, food, conversation, to connect in a human way in this day and age of internet sterility, and just to get this party started!

yourself and other cellists and enthusiasts, your cello, something to protect the
beautiful church floor from our sharp endpin daggers, a dish to pass (food is an essential part of life), and your love and great spirit!!

rough agenda:
6:00 - 6:45 : meet and greet, "getting to know you...."
6:45 : all star cello ensemble performance
7:00 : introductions and a history of the VCS
7:15 - on: small and large cello ensemble readings
of historic and modern pieces, some composed just for us, some transcribed
~ because everything sounds better on the cello!

we will provide drinks, music, atmosphere, many stories, and a great time!

admission is free, but we hope you might choose to become a VCS member to ensure future artistic cello endeavors!

we look forward very much to seeing and welcoming you into
the new New York Violoncello Society.
