VIDEO RELEASE: “Once Upon A December”

One of the most successful non-Disney animated films turns 20 today! Fox Animation’s Anastasia – notable for its all-star cast, award-winning Lynn Ahrens-Stephen Flaherty musical theatre writing team, and Don Bluth’s legendary strokes – is a nostalgic fairytale look at the tragic story of Anastasia. We grew up playing the popular “Once Upon A December” in youth orchestra, and we’re so happy to present our interpretation for string sextet.

VIDEO RELEASE: Dexter’s Laboratory & Director’s Podium No. 4

A little late for last month, but we’re showing a double! Enjoy the short but sweet (well, maybe dark) intro to Cartoon Network’s Dexter’s Laboratory played on cello plus our fourth edition of Director’s Podium with some questions and answers!

VIDEO RELEASE: A Tribute to James Horner

We take a break in our usual schedule to tribute one of the legendary composers who left our lives this year. James Horner was a true musical genius, crafting melodies and soundscapes for Titanic, Aliens, Avatar, and most recently Southpaw. Bobbie offers this cello tribute to Horner’s works for animated movies The Pagemaster, An American Tail, The Land Before Time, and Balto.

We miss you dearly and hope to see you again in that big somewhere out there …
