- Starting lessons with my private teacher
- My first live audition for a youth orchestra
- Being selected as Principal Cellist in the 2017 Colorado All State Symphony Orchestra
The time has come for the next milestone in my journey: purchasing a professional-quality cello that will allow me to further develop my craft throughout college and beyond.
Unfortunately, as I am purchasing a professional-quality instrument, there is a pretty hefty price tag involved. Thanks to a generous gift from my parents in addition to my personal savings, I have a large portion of the expenses covered, but nearly $6,000 remains as debt. I plan to continue working through the school year and summer to pay that down, but I need your help, too.
As you can hear in the video above, this is a serious cello. I found some time ago that my previous cello could no longer match my level of playing, and as I have upgraded, I have found how much of a difference a good instrument can make.
Any support you can give helps. There are a number of perks to the side for those who donate a little more.
Thank you all,
Nelson Walker, Cellist
(Funds will be collected by Angela Beloian, my mother)
