Don McLean

Don McLean began an ongoing process of discovering the ‘cello about 50 years ago, playing solo, chamber and orchestral music.   Formal study was undertaken at the Royal Conservatory in Toronto, Queen’s University, the National Youth Orchestra of Canada, and elsewhere, plus 43 years (thus far) in the ‘cello section of the Kingston Symphony.   When his instrument, labelled “Robert Duncan, Aberdeen 1778” was made, Mozart was composing his last 3 symphonies, and Beethoven turned 8!


Strings in the Afternoon

The “Strings in the Afternoon” trio --  two violins and viola, along with flute, piano and voice --will play a variety of styles of background music, ranging from classical to folk to pop.
