Cellists are the faculty of the CelloSpeak organization which includes artists gathered from the mid-Atlantic region and beyond.
The CelloSpeak organization was created in 2000 by the Founder and Artistic Director Dorothy Amarandos as a summer workshop for adult cello students yearning for an opportunity to play in ensembles. Her organization has grown from just 13 students in 2001 to over 120 participants who drive and fly from across the country to spend one or two weeks in the workshops to share their love of the cello. Students come from as far north as Alaska and as far south as Jamaica. They span a 50-year range in age and include absolute beginners to cellists who are teachers themselves.
Our Concert Benefactor is Brobst Violin Shop. Other sponsors include Gailes' Violin Shop, Foxes Music, and YellowCelloMusic.
