Welcome on the website of Violoncello! As was the case for Violoncello 2004, this website represents the most important means sof information and communication for Violoncello 2005.

Frontiers disappear, new bridges are built. Enjoy Violoncello 2005!
What is happening at Violoncello 2005:
More information on the activities
Professional and preprofessional cellists join the forum with a piece of their choice. As time is short we will concentrate both on new pieces and on which, though not well known, are worth being played. There will be possibilities to meet performing cellists and composers, to discuss with colleagues, to exchange pieces, to give and follow workshops, etc... Professional cellists are invited to register as soon as possible to make their contribution to the forum.
Amateur cellists are invited to register as soon as possible to take this opportunity to take part in the forum as a listener, and meet musicians and new music.
There is also a program for children, with two performances, a movie and a creative workshop
Especially for Violoncello 2005 there will be a cello orchestra for amateur cellists. This orchestra will perform during the closing concert of Violoncello 2005, the entire profit of which will be donated to Médecins sans Frontières. There will be 4 rehearsals to prepare for this concert, beginning with a partial rehearsal conducted by professional cellists. The orchestra will consist of amateur cellists, but professional cellists can join if they participate in the final run-through.
Final concert in benefit of Médecins sans Frontières with repertory for cello solo and with the cello orchestra
Violoncello 2005 ends on Sunday evening April 10 with a benefit concert for Médecins sans Frontières. The benefit of this concert wil be donated to Médecins sans Frontières. The concert consists of two parts: the first part will be a selection of pieces for cello-solo from the forum; the second part is the result of the rehearsals of the Cello Orchestra.
Violoncello 2005 has the ambition to be an event "without frontiers": no borders between nationalities, languages, professionals and amateurs, age and style. This openess will be expanded towards an external organisation. The humanitarian organisation Médecins sans Frontières has one of its head quarters in Brussels, and more specifically in Jette. This year Violoncello wants to give more attention to this wonderful organisation. Besides the benefit concert, there will be encounters with people of MSF to create bridges between the professional music world and the world of international humanitarian aid.
