The Alaska Cello Intensive (ACI) is a series of workshops providing focused cello instruction and ensemble work for college-bound and elementary students.

ACI combines intense music study with the perhaps more intense experience of Alaska’s midnight sun, landscapes like Denali National Park or Kennecott Glacier, Northern Lights, ice fog and stone-cold silence.
