Fun fact

When an open C string vibrates under fluorescent lights it sparkles rainbow.

This is caused by the fact that the lights are flicking on and off zillions of times per second and the frequency of the C (at least at my college, maybe it works everywhere idk) is just right. But it only works with open Cs. So only cellists and violists can do it.


This is extraordinary: University of Minnesota geography student and cellist Daniel Crawford brings 134 years of climate change data to life in a string quartet composition.

Sold this cello this week! It is one of my favorite pieces, and was hard to part with, but I am glad it has found a good home :) I’m itching to do another cello though, so I’ve added a “custom painted cello” listing to my Etsy site! Check it out!
