Cellissimo! – Coffs Con Cello Weekend

April 16 - 5:00 PM - April 18 - 3:00 PM

A weekend of all things cello, fun & learning

Join us for the inaugural Cellissimo! cello weekend at the Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium.

Cellissimo is a 3 day intensive camp for cello players of all ages and abilities. Working closely with the three tutors, students will grow as musicians, be inspired to push their musical limits and experience the joy of performing on stage with colleagues, friends and professionals in a fun and friendly environment.

Georgie Ostenfeld, cello teacher at the Coffs Con, has a passion for cello, folk & classical music and bringing musicians together in a fun and friendly learning environment. Join her as she brings the lower string community of the Coffs Coast together for a weekend of chamber music, concerts, masterclasses and fun. Participants will have the opportunity to work closely with Georgie as well as special guest cellists Caleb Murray and Monique Clare. Monique will be making her debut performance in Coffs Harbour as well as taking part in the weekend as a tutor. Having toured the world and performed at festivals that include Woodford Folk Festival, Monique comes to Coffs Harbour to inspire and create.

Tickets are strictly limited to 30 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
