This week is a chance for serious cellists to learn firsthand what it is like to study in the tradition of Lev Aronson. Players and teachers from across America will come to perform and to teach in the tradition of one of the most brilliant teachers that ever lived. It will be an invaluable experience to be immersed in the atmosphere of S.M.U. Meadows School of the Arts where Lev taught for many years, and to play alongside the most accomplished cellists and pedagogues in the world. Come to this once in a lifetime event to experience the most vocal approach to cello playing in a conservatory atmosphere.
