What can sound better than a cell? Eight cellos! This instrument, the closest to the human voice, is one of the few which carries being multiplied. When played together with others, the beauties of this instrument add up, giving birth to a unique, full and exceptional sound. Ô-Celli was brought to life by the shared passion of eight cellists, comber musicians and concertists, for this exceptional vibration they created. Together they take us on a fabulous journey through a repertoire of both original and arranged pieces as they eagerly travel through a wide musical panel, ranging from Tchaikovsky to Strauss, passing by the music of Piazzolla and Nino Rota.
Ô-Celli first toured Canada in 2017 and Oceanside Classical Concerts is proud to present them as featured performers in April, 2019.
