An afternoon with Joshua Roman (CCS Collegiate Division Winner 2004)

1 pm Popper Etudes Workshop 

3 pm Recital

The CCS is excited to offer this unique opportunity to Cleveland area cellists to actively engage with internationally-acclaimed cellist, Joshua Roman, dubbed by the press "a Classical rock star."

WORKSHOP: In 2009, Joshua embarked on his Popper Project, challenging himself to learn an etude a week, and posting a video as proof.  We thought it would be fun to hold a Popper Etudes Workshop immediately before the recital to help you improve your etudes game! The workshop will begin with Joshua leading ALL participants in a mass performance of Popper Etude No. 36, followed by solo performances by four pre-selected students, with Joshua providing helpful coaching.

Can you have Popper #36 “performance ready” by November 4th?  If your answer to that question is “yes”, then you should sign up!  Guaranteed to be a memorable day for one and all!

RECITAL: Joshua’s solo recital will follow the workshop—starting at 3 P.M.-- offering a fascinating program of works by Bach, Ginastera, Penderecki, Summer, plus Joshua’s own compositions as well as his arrangements of  Jimi Hendrix and Radiohead.  Please join us for this memorable afternoon of full-spectrum cello works.
