I began learning cello as an adult; I'm not accomplised, but playing brings great joy to my life. One of the blogs I follow is written by a woman, Emily Wright. Emily is a professional cellist, teacher, writer. Emily actually enjoys teaching adults, which is unusual. On Wednesday, she posted this link on her blog, Stark Raving Cello.
Even if you're not a fan of classical music, you will be enchanted by this short video clip. The piece, Le Cygne, is by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns, so there is a French connection.
If you check it out, let me know what you think.
