An incredible woman,
kept the cellist community together.
It was just workshops with her private students. Then it was cellists she had taught in school or coached in orchestra. Shortly, her students’ students joined. Next thing we knew, the cellists from the entire Bay Area were gathering to play at Milly’s Cello Bash.
Cello Bash in San Diego
In 2005, Milly held her last annual Cello Bash. At least 125 cellists, including generations of Milly’s students, performed that year. In 2012, Milly’s students and colleagues gathered one last time to celebrate her life. Milly’s love and music has continued to spread among all of us in cellist communities across the nation. We strive to continue providing the opportunity for cellists of all ages to share the same stage. San Diego, let’s bash!
