Cello Rental, and Orchestras/Ensembles

Hello! I just moved to Geneva and was not able to bring my own cello with me. I want to rent one here, but have only found a website or two for places whose prices are min. 60 CHF, which is too expensive for me.

Does anyone have any recommendations as to where to rent a (full sized) cello at a reasonable price? I would prefer stores that are easily accessible from downtown Geneva.

On a related note - can anyone recommend community orchestras/ensembles that would be open to new members?

Thanks in advance!!

It looks like the purchase price is about CHF 400 for a reasonable one.

They are cheaper in France, http://www.ebay.fr/sch/i.html?_from=...llo&_sacat=619
