Video on demand: The Orchestral Instruments: The VioloncellosKids event

Watch online on www.konserthuset.seKonserthusetPlayRecorded at Konserthuset Stockholm: Stora Salen, Stockholm, Sweden

Some of the orchestra's musicians show you how to play the cello! You will also see a children's cello! It is made for small hands and arms.

Often we use the word "cello" when we are talking about the violoncello. It is easier and shorter. The cello is the second largest of string instruments, and it can play in both low and high register. The cello can "sing" melodies beautifully; maybe that is one of the reasons why there are so many famous concertos for the instrument. 

This video is part of a series of playful videos on how the instruments used in a symphony orchestra function and sound. In each film, musicians from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra talk about their instruments and play one or several musical pieces together.

The series about the orchestral instruments is produced with the support of Konserthuset Stockholm's main sponsor SEB.
