They combine intelligence and work ethic to make beautiful music. Kelsey and Harrison Qu. Sister and brother. Cellists. Sometimes performing as a duet.

Kelsey is seventeen years old. Harrison is thirteen. Both take lessons from Augustana College Professor, Dr. Janina Ehrlich.

Kelsey is a member of the Iowa All State Orchestra. She also plays cello in the Quad City Youth Symphony. She attends Rivermont Collegiate in Bettendorf and excels in the classroom. Her goal is to attend college on a music scholarship.

Doctor Ehrlich describes Kelsey as a gifted musician, a teenager who demonstrates a balance of talent, intelligence, diligence and charm.

Harrison Qu attends Pleasant Valley Junior High. He says playing the cello is a fantastic way to express his emotions. Both brother and sister think the cello produces a comforting sound.

One of the challenges as a musician, Ehrlich believes, is to understand the music and make it come to life for the audience. She says the two teenage musicians certainly do that.

Kelsey points out  there is a distinct advantage to playing a large instrument like the cello.  She jokingly says people always hold the door open for you.
