TCU Cellofest

Since 2007, distinguished cellists, students, and cello ensembles from near and far corners of the world have converged at the TCU Cellofest to renew and make friendships while advancing the cello and its music. The festival features concerts, master-classes, performances, pre-formed cello ensembles, a concerto competition, a festival cello ensemble featuring students playing alongside artist-teachers, and much more.
