Cello Fury/A Cello Rock Powerhouse, Grades K-5, October 7, 2016
Cello Fury’s Musical Odyssey
Three classically trained cellists and a rock drummer perform high-energy, original music along with classical pieces and cover songs, allowing audiences to connect the dots between musical genres and relate to their own musical experiences. Audiences identify tone colors produced by cello and drums and explore the idea of genre by comparing and contrasting classical and rock music, the relationship between percussion and strings, the interplay of rhythms, and technology involved in producing a live show. http://www.goartivate.org/product/cello-fury/
