The cellist Johannes Moser has a residency at the Alte Oper in Frankfurt next season.
Instead of just playing to a passive public, he thought he might ask for their participation. So Johannes created ‘Spiel Mit! Johannes Moser and the 12 cellists’, inviting amateurs to join him on stage.
He expected 20 applications at most. But the deadline has just passed and he has 125 people queing for audition, aged between 9 and 78 years old. And more requests are still coming in.
Here’s the video pitch, with some extra cello tricks.
