University of Chichester Cello Weekend is a two-day course organised and coordinated by Professor Laura Ritchie.

All music is arranged to suit participants’ individual levels, and everyone comes together to form a fantastic cello-orchestra that performs throughout the two days. The course is open to cellists of all ages and abilities. The schedule includes workshops, masterclass sessions, large-group rehearsals, and chamber music opportunities.

The Cello Weekend is an opportunity for cellists keen to develop their performing, skills, technique, and musical appreciation to come together for a remarkable weekend of music-making. There is a gala concert to finish the course on Sunday at 4:30 pm that features the participant cello-orchestra. This year’s music ranges from arrangements of popular hits to Bach to a contemporary ‘gamified’ piece of music by Rebecca Askew.

Once you have booked please email with your booking reference. University cellists who assist with organisation will have their fee waived.

Sunday Cello-Gala concert: 4:30pm Admission free, donations accepted. No need to book.

Sat 18th & Sun 19th Apr, 10am – 5pm
