Sooo, I believe that each instrumentalist has similar personality types that identify with their chosen instrument. For example, surviving violinists tend to be a fairly organized, self critical and competitive. Bassists are laid back and jovial, violists are usually the truly odd ones, and then we have cellists. Obviously I am biased, however we seem to be somewhat introverted, helpful, and quite quirky (in understandably the best way.)
One such splendidly unique cellist is Emily Wright, author of A Modern Cellist’s Manual and delightful blog Stark Raving Cello. Here Emily shares stories of her playing, studio, travels, and love affair with a cello that just wasn’t meant to be. I highly suggest visiting her blog for wonderful adventures and to find out what holiday Cellomas is.
Oh, and she has a great bumper sticker:
