International Cello Day December 29


International Cello Day Honors Cellists Around the World

The international cello day is celebrated every Dec 29. This was the birthday of Pablo Casals who has been named “the greatest musician ever to draw bow” by Fritz Kreisler. The famed cellist played for both Queen Victoria and President John F Kennedy. He was the founder of the “Pablo Casals Festival” in Prades, France, his adopted home. The festival continues today and has resulted in creating many legendary recordings through the years.

International Cello Day Can be Celebrated in Many Ways


If you are wondering how to celebrate this special day you might start by creating a festival in your own hometown. This can include performances by local cellists. If the budget allows for it, you might contract with a famous cello player. Your festival can include food, drink, displays, and offer a day for the family to enjoy.

If you wish to organize something a little less involved you might choose to bring several of your fellow-cello players together and enjoy some cello-only group music. If you know some other cellists you seldom see, you might choose to join them for an hour or two and discuss your views on different styles, techniques, and so forth.

If you have always been an admirer of the cello, but never played, mark this special day on your calendar and make this the day you try playing a cello for the first time. Next year you will hopefully be so advanced that you can join one of the festivals held on this day.
