Mozart concert ensign

A cello

The cello was an Earth musical instrument, bigger than a viola and smaller than a double bass. It was a member of the violin family.

A cello was part of the string quartet hallucinated by a crewmember of the USS Enterprise-D when the Traveler brought the ship and crew to the end of the universe. (TNG: "Where No One Has Gone Before")

A cello, a viola, and two violins formed a string quartet. (TNG: "The Ensigns of Command")

One of the musicians at the Mozart concert held for Ambassador Sarek and his wife Perrin played the cello. (TNG: "Sarek")

Miles O'Brien once stated to Jake Sisko that he knew how Jake felt, while discussing Jake's desire not to go to Starfleet Academy despite his father's wishes that he joined. Miles explained that his father wanted him to be a musician, specifically a cello player. Miles explained that his father made him practice every day, until he "got to be pretty good." Then, when Miles was seventeen, his father sent a recorded audition to the Aldeberan Music Academy, where he was eventually accepted. Unhappy with the prospect, Miles went into town two days before he was due to leave and signed up for Starfleet. (DS9: "Shadowplay") While serving aboard the USS Enterprise-D Miles would occasionally play cello with his fellow crew in Ten Forward. (TNG: "The Ensigns of Command") Like his former crewmate, Ensign Cheney also played the cello. (TNG: "Lessons")
