Hello Cello Days

As in previous editions of the Cello Biennale, the Hello Cello Orchestra’s 160 young cellists will be taking the stage during the opening weekend and performing music specially composed for them. The orchestra will be rehearsing in Amstelveen, The Hague, Tilburg and Zwolle ahead of their opening performance.

The Cello Biennale and local partners will be organising Hello Cello Days in four cities around the Netherlands – a mainly free mini-festival for the whole family, including Bach&Breakfast, masterclasses, kids’ performances, workshops, trial lessons and instrument makers. The climax of each Hello Cello Day will be a performance by the Hello Cello Orchestra made up of young cellists from the local area.
