Every year this annual Instrument Fest rotates between a focus on the cello or a focus on the violin. This February we had 25 participants take part in Cellofest, spending a long weekend here at the Centre. The participants, mostly young emerging artists, were excited to attend this specialized training opportunity, which combines master classes, ensemble coaching, and supervised rehearsals. Below are a few snapshots that capture Cellofest in action.
