Pittsburgh Cello Fest is a day-long community event for cellists, cello enthusiasts, and music lovers of all ages. Now in its 3rd year, activities include masterclasses presented by members of the Pittsburgh Symphony, workshops on classical and alternative styles, featured cello ensemble and chamber music performances, and concludes with a large cello ensemble performance. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, May 25, 2019 at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Music.

In 2017, 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!

In 2018, three professional cello ensembles performed, students from five music schools participated, two master classes were given by Pittsburgh Symphony cellists, two youth cello groups performed, and one world premiere piece by composer Nancy Galbraith was debuted by a 25-piece cello choir!

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.  General donations of any size are welcome, and additionally we are introducing four 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, and programs, unless you wish to remain anonymous.

Sponsorship Levels:

Bronze $100

Silver $250

Gold $500

Diamond $1,000

Thank you for your consideration!
