This festival introduces the all new CELLOFEST: Eight evenings in Bimhuis, each featuring interesting performances from the international non-classical cello world. All around the world, people are experimenting with the cello. Cello players are creating their own music, far removed from the classical repertoire and sometimes even the classical way of playing the cello. Think cello-playing singer-songwriters, world music, jazz and pop musicians, improvisers, and video and performance artists from the USA, Canada, South Afrika, Iran, Germany, Austria, Sweden, France, England, Spain, and the Netherlands.
