Cellaboration is the coolest event in Blair history

Tonight at 8pm in Turner Hall

Do you like new music written by fellow college students? Have you always wished you’d learned to play the cello?

The answer to both of these questions should be yes.

Every few years, Blair’s composition and cello studios join forces in what’s known as the Living Sounds Cellaboration.

Lucky for you, this happens to be one of those magical years.

Each student in the composition department is matched up with a student cellist and tasked with writing them their very own cello piece.

If Bach and Mozart come to mind when you read the words composition and cello, let me assure you that these pieces are like nothing you’ve ever heard before. They’re written and performed by college students, not dead guys from the 18th century.
