Last year, there were over 200 people in attendance; 45 young cellists performed together in a youth ensemble; 30 professional and advanced students joined in a Cello Choir; and 7 members of the Pittsburgh Symphony cello section were involved in teaching and performing!
The Pittsburgh Cello Fest is currently looking for donations to help defray the costs of the Fest. Your donations will go directly to provide honorariums for the performers and masterclass clinicians, as well as music composition for the cello ensemble (which includes the world premiere of a cello choir piece by Pittsburgh composer Nancy Galbraith!) General donations of any size are welcome, and additionally we are introducing 4 higher levels of sponsorship. If you donate a minimum of one these amounts, you will be featured on the website, social media sites, and printed material including posters, signs, tee shirts, and programs, unless you wish to remain anonymous.
Thank you for your consideration!
Director, Pittsburgh Cello Fest
