Yesterday Cellocracy played for the better part of three hours a local Visitor's Center, while Santa was available for the kids. Sadly, not too many people showed, but we had a good time.
Two more events: one with our orchestra a week from Friday, and then Cellocracy plays a private Christmas party the next day.
After discussions with our coach (a pianist and violist) we tried it with that first part taken down an octave. We all liked how it sounded, with the blended cello-y richness of four cellos.
We worked on this piece for quite some time and found a groove that seemed to work for us.
Again, many thanks for the score, Terry. :)
By the way, I also have an O Holy Night arrangement for four cellos (transcription is a better word for it, it's not terribly original). In that case, I think it's the 4th part, the low part, that's the most challenging. I've been meaning to record it. Maybe this year I'll get around to it.
