A cello sectional is when only the cellos get together to practice. The Divertimento cello section had one last Thursday at the Agudath Israel Synagogue. It was led by Donald Whitton, who is a well-known and highly skilled player and teacher. He had not previously seen the pieces we are doing for this semester, but was able to play them well (much better than I) after only a few moments with them.
I learned a number of playing tricks and some better fingerings. All in all a very successful evening.
