I get asked a lot lately if I have any advice for new cellists. Here's my answer...
Famous cellist Dale Henderson and Actor Dermot Mulroney team up to reintroduce classical music to the people of Los Angeles in front of the La Brea Tar Pits Museum!
Dale Henderson is also the founder of "Bach in the Subways," an organization that leads an international and unorthodox movement to sow the seeds for future generations of classical music lovers by generating public interest and excitement for the art form in some rather unconventional places.
Dermot Mulroney plays with conviction and a deep appreciation for Henderson's out-of-the-box movement to keep the soothing and calming tones of classical music relevant to a society where our desire for instant gratification has changed why we even listen to music.
"When I perform, I willingly share my entire inner world, my whole self with the audience – I put my soul on display. Otherwise what's the point?"
Everyone's talking about 'mindfulness' lately. Why aren't they talking about music?! Music invented mindfulness!
"Classical music belongs to every living human being on the planet!"
Starting cello at age five and debuting professionally at 13, Dale Henderson trained with the best of the best in the classical music world, including Yo-Yo Ma, Sir Yehudi Menuhin, and Leonard Bernstein protégé Eiji Oue. Dale excelled as a traditional performer but chafed against a culture that prevents everyday people from connecting with classical music.
Rebelling against the traditional boundaries for his artform, in 2010 Henderson broke down and reinvented where and how classical music creates meaning, performing “Bach in the Subways” in New York City. His unorthodox vision caught on, and within five years he grew his solo project into a global music movement which now brings the music to the people in hundreds of cities in dozens of countries.
Dale is based in New York City and performs around the world.

Alex Schrodt plays drums in Murder by Death, one of the hardest working bands in the country. Just check out their tour schedule! Alex talks about leaving space in the music so everyone (including MBD's cello player) can have enough room. Watch Alex use mallets on the cymbals and even play the walls of the club instead of his drums. From whisper quiet to furious and screaming, Alex, who learned to hit hard from Thursday's Tucker Rule, is in charge behind the kit.

String quartet is made up of two violin players, a viola player and a cello player. Their repertoire range from baroque to classical music but they also play evergreens, oldies and love songs. In other words, ultra versatile!
