About the event

Cello Fury and Friends Annual Holiday Show returns at the  Pittsburgh Winery!  This one-night-only show features special guests  Clinton Clegg from The Commonheart, Molly Alphabet and saxophonist Scott  Boni. About Cello Fury: WEBSITE | FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | LISTEN A  cello rock powerhouse featuring three cellists and a drummer, Cello  Fury's original music combines the symphonic sounds of the cello with  driving rock beats. The band's cinematic, progressive rock sound appeals  to a diverse audience throughout the United States and abroad. Cello  Fury's multi-faceted approach to performing, which combines high-energy  live shows, music education, workshops, and tours, has allowed the band  to perform over 100 concerts yearly in venues ranging from classical  music halls and rock clubs to schools and music festivals. As an  independent band, Cello Fury has released three albums of original  music, including "X" (2018), “Symphony of Shadows” (2013), and “Cello  Fury” (2011).

Founding members Nicole Myers and Simon Cummings, who also  composes for the band, were joined by cellist Cecilia Caughman in 2018.   Drummer David Throckmorton has performed with the group since its  start in 2009.  Past notable shows include entertaining a crowd of  67,000 during an NFL half time show, headlining the Three Rivers Arts  Festival, performing the national anthem for the Pittsburgh Pirates, and  performing three sold-out shows at the Byham Theater on New Year's Eve.   Cello Fury performed official showcase performances for two years  straight at the largest music festival of its kind in the world, “South  By Southwest” (SXSW). Cello Fury was selected to perform at the  “Americans for the Arts” national convention, the Pennsylvania Music  Educators Association (PMEA) annual conference, and presented an  interactive performance and workshop at the American String Teachers  Association (ASTA) national conference. Cello Fury performed as an  instrumental solo ensemble with the Southeastern Ohio Symphony  Orchestra, both performing and orchestration their original music for  full symphonic orchestra.  Since 2018, the ensemble has presented an  annual “Cello Fury and Friends” Holiday Show, bringing together local  and national collaborators.  Cello Fury band members performed as  soloists with Marvin Hamlisch and the Pittsburgh Symphony Pops  Orchestra.  Cello Fury was featured on the cover of the indie music  publication, Vents Magazine, and was featured on the cover of the  Pittsburgh City Paper's "City Guide". Cello Fury was chosen as one of  Skope Magazine's "Artists to Watch". Feature articles on the band have  been written in various newspapers throughout the US, highlighting both  performances and the band's dedication to music education.
