Hello, friends!  

We invite you to give kindly to support the second year of the CELLO SPRINGS FESTIVAL, the team-project of Chiara Enderle, Lisa Liske-Doorandish, and Miriam Liske-Doorandish. Encouraged by incredibly positive feedback following our inaugural festival in 2017, the second Cello Springs Festival will take place in Yellow Springs, Ohio from January 3-13, 2018.

CSF is a celebration of the cello, an event through which to explore the different ways this instrument connects people. Some important components of our vision:

• Cello Springs Festival 2018 will be a forum for cellists to deepen their work through focused time with other like-minded artists - simultaneously a community outreach events and an incubator for musical growth over ten days of practicing, workshops, playing, and performing.

•7-8 cellists will comprise the core group, with up to a dozen other musicians joining in as satellite players for large ensemble concerts. Ranging from young musicians just beginning their careers to seasoned professionals, these artists will gather from both the U.S. and abroad. There will also be an apprentice position for a dedicated young cellist in the 10-18 age range.

•CSF will offer free concerts in a range of different settings. We aim to connect general audiences with the cello repertoire, provide educational opportunites for local students, bring music to the retirement community, and collaborate with artists and poets in the Yellow Springs area.

We hope you will support this opportunity for musicians to work together and bring relevant, moving music to the world. In addition to financial support, you can contribute by traveling to Yellow Springs to hear our concerts, or by volunteering to help with practical aspects of running this festival (i.e. media and publicity, hosting musicians/cooking meals, and office work). Please email cellospringsfestival@gmail.com if you wish to participate in any way!

Thank you!
Chiara, Lisa & Miriam

Dear supporters of music and cellos and cellists,

Cello Springs Festival thanks you for your support of a scintillating second season. With your help we gathered in Yellow Springs, Ohio for ten days of rehearsal, mutual inspiration, and outreach to the community. We played four public concerts ranging from improvisation with poets and paintings to Piatti. We played for children in after school programs, for a retirement home, and for students and staff at Antioch College. We offered a technique class to all comers from the area. We laughed and cooked and practiced and rehearsed cello ensemble music. We had the honor of an hour-long program on WYSO, the local NPR station. We were featured in three newspaper articles. We collaborated with the fabulous UCelli Quartet from Columbus. We departed for home filled with cello energy and ideas to fuel our creative fires for the coming year. Cello Springs Festival will take place next January 2-12, 2019. Please put it in your calendar. Thank you for your kind, generous, and much-appreciated support!
Cello Springs Festival 2018 thanks you!
