Violoncello Masterclass with Jean-Guihen Queyras.

Municipal Conservatory of Kalamata
August 31 – September 6, 2024

This year’s violoncello masterclass with Jean-Guihen Queyras will be held from August 31 until September 6, 2024, in rooms of the Municipal Conservatory of Kalamata

This masterclass gives the opportunity to young cellists to develop their musical and technical skills whilst also assisting them to reach their personal goals. Musicians preparing for exams, competitions or auditions are of course welcome. Through a small group of four (4) active participants, the festival is cultivating an inspiring and friendly environment for the best possible development of each cellist. At the same time, the masterclass participants have the chance to appear frequently together on stage, invigorating as a result the international artistic exchange, inspiration and musical dialogue of the International Kalamata Music Days. The concerts will be held in Kalamata and its surrounding area. 

The masterclass with Jean-Guihen Queyras is aimed at young cellists from all around the world and of all ages – from those aiming to study music to students and graduates of conservatories and music universities. The masterclasses will be open to the broader public. Students of the Municipal Conservatory of Kalamata (including students other than cellists) are invited to attend and get inspired.

Lesson languages: English, French and German
