2014 Cello Choir

South Carolina Cello Choir

The American String Teachers Association (ASTA) South Carolina Cello Choir and workshop is for cellists of all ages and ability levels. The annual Cello Choir has taken place every September since its inception at the University of South Carolina in 1980.

Professionals, amateurs, teachers and students from around the region take part in this musical phenomenon, learning from renowned clinicians and music faculty.

Cellists of all ages are invited to participate in this year's Cello Choir and workshop. The festival is designed for cellists of all ages and ability levels. We especially invite out-of-state cellists to join us!

This is a terrific event for ’cellists of all ages from near beginners who can read music to professionals, and for all lovers of the ’cello as an instrument. We hope to see you there!

This annual event alternates between the University of South Carolina, Furman University, Bob Jones University, Converse College and the College of Charleston.
