CELLO MADNESS CONGRESS @ The Blue Macaw
DescriptionThe Cello Madness Congress is a loose knit group of cellists from around the bay area (50+ strong and growing!) who get together on a monthly basis to write a new constitution of what is possible with the violincello or ‘cello for short. We play the instrument said to be most like the human voice and we create spontaneous, improvised, magical musical moments of pure ecstasy (the aural/auditory kind) that astound and amaze the listener’s ear. We can go from a stately, majestic promenade of elf gods to a wild, erratic, frantic frenzy of whirling space gnomes dancing in eternity whilst seducing seahorses and sea cucumbers. Our jams can depict the ephemeral wisps of smoke rising from a funeral pyre to the prismatic rainbow colored fanfare of a three ring circus complete with elephants and clowns. We also read music arranged for cello. We invite all cellists to come and explore with us. Other instruments are welcome too, especially violin, viola, and upright bass. FREE! (tips and donations encouraged..) Come and experience the magic for yourself!
