A cello rock powerhouse featuring three cellists and a drummer, Cello Fury's original music combines the emotive and symphonic sounds of the cello with driving rock beats to create a cinematic, progressive rock sound. A rarity in the music world, Cello Fury appeals to a diverse audience throughout the United States and abroad, performing in venues ranging from concert halls to rock clubs. Continually developing their own unique style of cello rock music, cellists Simon Cummings, Ben Muñoz and Nicole Myers along with drummer David Throckmorton unleash vitality and rhythmic drive in their music and dare to venture past classical expectations. In addition to an active performance and touring schedule, the band focuses on inspiring young musicians and giving back to the community. There will be side-by-side performances with the East Brunswick High School, Churchill Junior High School and Hammarskjold Middle School orchestra programs.

The series combines unique educational opportunities for the students with world class performances by renowned visiting professional artists for the entire community to enjoy.
