Outline of the 2020 festival will be very similar to the 2019 week.
Further details will be updated on here in due course!
It is still not certain whether the Aboyne Cello Festival 2020 will be able to go ahead. We obviously have to follow Scottish guidelines, and if “Social Distancing” is still in place then the cello orchestra can’t happen and neither can audiences!
We are looking into online possibilities if we do have to cancel, so please keep the dates in your diaries for “Cello Fun”.
Young Artist; The deadline for applications is put back to May 31st, so please do carry on preparing your – probably unaccompanied – applications, but there is no desperate hurry to get them completed immediately. If the Festival is cancelled we will not appoint a Young Artist.
Keep well, keep celloing, and if we don’t meet this year then let’s look forward to 2021😁
Welcome to the Aboyne Cello Festival and Summer School!
Started back in 2005, the Aboyne Cello Festival is now established as one of the cello highlights of the year.
Eight days of intensive cello workshops, lessons, chamber music, cello orchestra and all-round Cello Inspiration! Our wonderful team of world class tutors get fully involved in nurturing the development of all cellists on the summer school, and also provide a series of professional concerts at super venues across this wonderful area of Scotland.
We welcome participants of all ages and stages and can offer a bespoke experience. There are sessions for adult amateurs as well as intensive sessions for conservatoire students and those working towards music conservatoire. There are also opportunities for younger students to have group and individual lessons.
The Aboyne Cello Festival brings recitals that would grace top venues anywhere in the world, and teachers of major international standing to this fantastic part of Aberdeenshire, and we look forward to welcoming you as a student or a member of the audience. Please contact us for further information.
