Who can play in the SSCC?
The Silver Spring Cello Choir is an intergenerational ensemble dedicated to building community through music. Any cellist 10 years or older with music reading experience is welcome to join. Adults welcome and encouraged to join! All participants are required to have basic music-reading skills.
When does the SSCC meet?
This semester all SSCC rehearsals and classes will be online on Wednesday nights, 7-8:15pm, February 10-May 5. Weekly rehearsals will include cello technique, music theory, and history, as well as a time to get to know the other members. Instead of our usual concert, the spring season will culminate in several multi-track videos that can be shared with friends and family.
How much does it cost to join?
The registration fee is $300, which covers 12 rehearsals, sheet music, practice recordings, and three 20-minute individual sessions with the director. Music will be sent out one week prior to the first rehearsal. Register on or before February 10 for an additional $25 off.
If financial need is at all a concern, use the contact page to ask about scholarships and financial aid. The SSCC welcomes all regardless of financial need.
