A day of shared learning for young cellists

Royal Academy of Music, London NW1 5HT

We thank our very special sponsors

Stringers London and Edinburgh and Junior Academy

for their generous support of this event.

The London Cello Society is pleased to present CelloDay 2024 in partnership with the Royal Academy of Music. Our annual CelloDay is always an exciting time to reunite and share the joys of playing together, as well as learning new skills and getting those warm-ups and cello techniques rolling. As always, there will be the chance to perform in masterclasses with some of the UK’s finest teachers.

This year we are featuring a new mini-class for beginner cellists only, given by the Royal Academy of Music’s own specialist Lara Moore. We welcome you to bring your family and friends for what promises to be a memorable day of cello playing. See you there!
