About the Workshop

Mountainside Chamber Music hosts this 12 hr weekend workshop for intermediate level cellists (12+). Cellists Jeff Faragher and Olivia Walsh will lead attendees to “Go deeper into the realm of tone and further develop your cello sound. Building on the fundamentals of vibrato, explore the many other tools cellists use to create a wide range of tonal colours. Cellists Jeff Faragher and Olivia Walsh will guide this 3 day intensive workshop where they will discuss the foundational and subtle elements of tone such as bow usage, intonational clarity as well as cover basic and further vibrato techniques. The course will include instruction, practice and implementation in repertoire that will ensure the solid understanding of the techniques. The workshop will benefit those new to these concepts and cellists looking to bring their playing to a more advanced level through developing a richer, fuller and more intentional pallet of sound”. 3 hr Fri, 6 hr Sat, 3 hr Sun.
