String Riffs Celebration Performance Set 1 spotlights cello ensembles with substantial compositions challenging groups of players with differing skill levels.

Try “Heart Strings,” “Tree Celli Mon” and “Click Beetle Boogie.” Levels 1 – 3 for all cellos.
Rich sonorities reveal all the capabilities of a cello trio with contrasting rhythms and smooth slides. Young players will savor the simple, satisfying lines.
Reach deep inside a cello quartet and stir emotions with gracefully interwoven melodies, varying rhythms and plenty of dynamic contrast.
