IS BACK IN SPRING 2023

The Kenya International Cello Festival returns for its second season - bringing artists from across the world back to the cultural centers of Kenya for a one-of-a-kind series of masterclasses & performances in March 2023.

 

Born out of a deep dedication to the students of Ghetto Classics in Korogocho, a youth education program in one of Africa's most impoverished communities, the festival's repertoire reflects the wide tapestry of voices interwoven within the multicultural fabric of the festival.

Throughout the week-long program, students benefit  from a series of masterclasses focused on the holistic development of an artist. 

 

Some courses include:

  • Sound from Breath

  • Listening as an Approach to Learning

  • Playing with Ease (Tension-Free)

  • Rhythm as Language and Gesture

  • Pedagogy for Teachers

  • The Art of Practice

  • It’s Electric! An Introduction to Electroacoustics
