In the midst of the Covid-19 shutdown, Cellospeak held its first-ever Town Hall via Zoom on May 9, 2020, hosted by our Artistic Director, Bomin Collins. It was a smashing success. About 70 peopled registered, and at any one time we had over 50 people participating, from as far away as Washington, Florida, Arizona (100+ degrees), Maine (snow) and even Ireland! Everyone was happy to see each other’s faces and to have a chance to catch up. We also had significant participation from our wonderful faculty, including Bomin Collins, Louise Butler, Bob Battey, Carl Donakowski, Nancy Baun, Irina Tikhonova, Kris Gilbert, Marion Baker and Jihea Choi. Amazingly, a poll taken by Bomin at the start of the session revealed that, out of 46 people voting, 87% had been to a Cellospeak workshop, and 11% had not yet been to one! We hope those who have not yet experienced Cellospeak were inspired enough by what they saw and heard to want to attend a workshop in the future. Everyone expressed a love of Cellospeak and the friends we have all made in this community. We all miss each other very much!
