Following in the footsteps of the Extreme Cellists, the Junior Extreme Cellists have recently begun their own ventures in bringing cello music to unusual locations!
The four junior cellists - Amy (15), Anna (15), Seth (12) and Zulf (12) - will, on Monday 1 April, be playing at a number of extreme locations in and around Castleton in Derbyshire. This will begin with a performance in Cavedale at 10.00am, and will be followed by playing in the Treak Cliff Cavern at 11.30am. All are welcome! Following this, they will trek up the heights of Mam Tor, stopping to play on the “broken road” - the old A625 that was spectacularly damaged by a landslide in 1974.
This is all being done in aid of the charity Music for All - which supplies musical instruments, and music education, to people (of all ages) who would not otherwise get the opportunity to play. The Junior Extreme Cellists are aiming to raise £1000 for the charity via sponsorship - if you would like to sponsor them, you can do so by clicking here:
