Middle/Highschool Students

All students participate in a variety of workshops, classes, exhibits and performances.

All students participate in a cello ensemble appropriate for their skill level. Ensembles are separated by age/grade. Students may participate in an ensemble of another grade with written recommendation by a teacher to info@valleyoncello.com. Students may move to an ensemble with more difficult repertoire, or move to an ensemble with easier repertoire.
All cello ensembles perform in the Festival Ensemble Concert Sunday, March 26, 4:30pm in the UTRGV Performing Arts Center, Edinburg.
