    You're forgetting Lynn Harrell, Alisa Weilerstein, and Truls Mork, people.

    Alisa Weilerstein is now an Artist-in-Residence at CIM, where she had been a member of their Young Artists Program. I am really hoping to get a chance to hear her in person this year.

    I am not sure about Truls Mork, but the other 2 teach in addition to performing. My main statement still stands. There are only a few cellists who earn their living exclusively through performing. Even the best ones teach as well.

    Viola Dad, How do you search for a thread from a particular person as you refered to in this last post about composition?
  • violadadvioladad Registered User Posts: 6,645 Senior Member
    Click on the poster's name (in the left margin) of a post the poster has written.

    A drop down menu appears. Click "find more posts"

    Another way is click the search this forum button towards the right top of the page.

    A box will open.

    Click advanced. This is the search function. Just follow the search instructions that open.

    I agree with the other folks who said your first batch of schools are just as hard to get into as the others. I think Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music is a big stretch since you must have excellent academics as well as talent. And for all the schools, competition is fierce for cello.
