Just heard about an sweet opportunity for cello players that we thought we'd let you know about: Imogen Heap is evidently looking for someone local to play the "slightly mad cello part" for "Aha!" with her on stage on Sunday, November 15, at the Boulder Theater during her Etown appearance. While we'd like to tell you that this is a special gesture just for her Colorado fans, truth is, she's actually inviting a different cellist in each city to perform with her. Even so, sounds like a cool, once-in-a-lifetime type experience. Heap will be auditioning players remotely from her hotel room via Vokle a few days prior to each gig. In our case, this means next week. Download the sheet music for "Aha!" and get more information on her website. Have strings, will travel? Let your fingers do the walking.
