On Cellos and Life

 
Each person has inside a basic decency and goodness. If he listens to it and acts on it, he is giving a great deal of what it is the world needs most. It is not complicated but it takes courage. It takes courage for a person to listen to his own good.
(Spanish Cellist and Conductor)

Speaking of cellos, my friend Michelle Beauchesne is a wonderfully-talented professional cellist, and she happens to live locally. Click the link on her name if you'd like to sample some of her classical solo music.
  
Here is some of Michelle's most recent work, as part of the duo Sean & Michelle, including a new album and some upcoming performances, including one on October 1st in Santa Barbara (Road Trip, anyone???).

  2. Tim Allen just posted on Facebook today that he and his wife are going to see Yo-Yo Ma and Kathryn Stott in HK in November. Is it like "Cello Day" and no one sent me a memo?
