Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance

Go Cello! is a national celebration of the cello for young cellists grades 1-8+ taking place in the exciting maritime locale of Greenwich. Historic treasures like the Cutty Sark and the National Maritime Museum nearby, along with our world-class faculty, will inspire our journey through three days of performances and a range of classes exploring repertoire, technique, improvisation and more.

Go Cello! will culminate in a festive concert by the Senior and Junior Cello Ensembles and South East Camerata on the Museum’s famous Great Map, exploring our seafaring heritage through three world premieres inspired by the Museum’s collections. We welcome you, your family and friends to join us for a once-in-a-lifetime event celebrating the instrument we all love to play!

We also offer Teaching the Young Cellist event which will include presentations on teaching beginners, movement and learning, arranging and composing, new discoveries about the brain, and much more. Open to 30 teachers and student trainee teachers. Saturday 14th April 2018, check Schedule for more information. Sponsored by We Love Musicians Insurance.’

Presented by the London Cello Society, in partnership with Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance and the National Maritime Museum. We wish to thank all our partners, Meridian Primary School, South East Camerata and all our sponsors for their generous support of this cello adventure.

“Trinity Laban is proud to join the London Cello Society and Royal Museums Greenwich in the unique opportunity presented by Go Cello! to fulfil our shared aims of bringing music to young people, and young people to music.

We look forward to welcoming cellists from across the UK, as well as local schools, to our beautiful, World Heritage home at the Royal Naval College in Greenwich in this celebration of all things “cello”, while introducing them to the exciting venues of the Cutty Sark and National Maritime Museum and our own junior and senior students and staff. The music presented, including several world premieres, will closely reflect local history, associated with global maritime adventure, exploration and discovery, in an inspiring mix of old stories, often told with a modern twist.”
