Calling All Cellists

The DSU Cello Festival will be held on September 18-19, 2020 in Dixie State University’s Eccles Fine Arts Center.  Dedicated to promoting the learning, enjoyment, and community-involvement in cello playing, the two-day Festival will offer a lots of wonderful opportunities for cellists of all ages and all levels. This year we are glad to have the Zivian-Tomkins Duo and Dr. Bongshin Ko as the Festival’s featured artist and clinicians.  We will especially celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birthday by featuring the complete cello-piano works by the composer.  The festival events include large cello ensemble sessions and guest-artist and faculty performances, chamber music, cello master classes, the ASTA Cello Lecture Series, and other workshop and performance opportunities.

Register online now! The $45 registration includes access to every performance, workshop and event in the festival, a free Festival T-shirt, as well as a complimentary pizza lunch. Free registration for ASTA members and full-time DSU students.  Email Dr. Yu at ka-wai.yu@dixie.edu for any questions or further information.

Thank you. And we look forward to seeing you this September.
