Welcome to the Dixie State University Cello Festival 2016!

The DSU Cello Festival will be held on September 16-17, 2016 in Dixie State University Eccles Fine Arts Center. Dedicated to promote the learning, enjoyment, and community-involvement in cello playing, the two-day Festival will offer a lot of wonderful opportunities for cellists of all ages and all levels. This year we are glad to have the Rosin Cello Duo as the Festival’s featured artists and clinicians (

Highlights of the festival include large cello ensemble sessions and final performance, chamber music opportunities, cello master classes, guest-artist recital and a lecture on how to practice efficiently, among others. There will also be two world-premieres of the Festival’s composer-in-residence Elena Chiu’s compositions for cello ensemble, and for cello-percussion duo respectively.

Register online now! The $25 registration includes access to every performance, workshop and event in the festival, a free Festival T-shirt, as well as a complimentary pizza lunch. Email Dr. Yu at for any questions or further information.

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