This week on Thursdays@Three, we welcome cellist, music educator, and conductor Diane Chaplin. She will perform folk-influenced solo cello music from ALL seven continents, including music by Mark O’Connor and the Ligeti Sonata for Solo Cello.

Tune in at 89.9 FM in Portland or anywhere online via our live player.


Diane Chaplin is a world-class cellist, nurturing music educator, and dedicated conductor. She appears often as a concerto soloist, recitalist and chamber music artist, and tours around the U.S. as a featured member of the Portland Cello Project. She has a large class of private cello students (right now still on Zoom!), and adjudicates for solo, ensemble and orchestra festivals throughout Oregon and Washington. Diane is the Program Coordinator for the Chamber Music Camp of Portland, where she also conducts the Advanced Chamber Orchestra. In 2019 she began performing solo cello recitals both in the U.S. and Italy under the name Il Violoncello Capriccioso, which set her up well for her current project: livestreams of solo cello music on her YouTube channel.
