Cello Studio Quarantine Prelude Project

Among the most well-known repertoire for cello are the Solo Cello Suites by J.S. Bach.  The opening Prelude to Suite No. 1 in G Major is a perennial favorite.  Each member of the cello studio performed 6 measures of the suite. The students needed to follow specific instructions, such as metronome markings, so their excerpts could be pasted together into a continuous whole.  All of the students learned how to record their work in Quick Time.  Bach's music is always a good companion during hard times.  Enjoy!
