More and more people in the lime light have been tracing the roots of their success back to qualities such as discipline, or well-roundedness. It’s no surprise that the 61st Annual Miss USA Pageant, comes from musical roots, particularly, the cello. Miss Rhode Island, Olivia Culpo, was crowned as the new pageant queen Sunday night in Las Vegas. As part of her background, Olivia told stories of the way she spent her summers, which resembles many other kids, attending band camps, practicing her instrument, and furthering her love of the cello. Culpo added that even though at the age of 20, she had 13 years of experience playing the cello.
Now that Memorial Day weekend has passed and summer has begun, Band Camps are in full swing and students are furthering their musicial talents. Many beginning orchestra or band students and their parents are often faced with the decision, should I buy a cello or rent a cello. RentMYinstrument.com provides great rental options on Orchestra instruments, especially the Cello.
