Hello Cello Day Amstelveen

This year the Hello Cello Day, part of the educational program of the Cello Biennale Amsterdam, descends on Amstelveen on Sunday, October 9. Come and listen or participate yourself!

The Hello Cello Dagen will take place in The Hague, Amstelveen, Zwolle and Eindhoven, prior to the Cello Biënnale in Amsterdam. In Amstelveen, the invasion of many young, some famous and widely enthusiastic cellists is scheduled for Sunday, October 9. The Hello Cello Day is partly free of charge and offers a festive introduction to all things cello.

The program includes concerts, a family performance, workshops, master classes and much more, for young and old. Everyone can enjoy the versatility of the cello. An avid cellist yourself? Sign up for a workshop or master class and get a unique experience!

The highlight is the final concert by Young Strings, Junior Orchestra and the Hello Cello Orchestra, the Cello Biennale's big buzzing cello orchestra, which hosts young cellists from the region.
