Six cellos are to be purchased in various sizes for use in the elementary schools. A full-size cello, or 4/4 cello, will be purchased in the first, second and third years of the campaign.  A 1/4 cello, reduced in size for use by smaller students, will be purchased in the second, third and fourth years.  Also known as the violincello, the cello is the second largest stringed instrument - only the string bass, or double bass, is bigger. Of all the string instruments, the cello sounds the most like a human voice and can make a wide variety of tones, from warm low pitches to bright higher notes.  An important instrument in numerous ensembles, the cello often is featured as a solo instrument.
