Cello Museum Simple Gifts Video Project

Still accepting video submissions

Simple Gifts Project

Cellists of all levels (from beginners through professionals) are invited to participate by sending a video performance of one of the parts of our arrangement of the traditional Shaker tune, “Simple Gifts.” We will combine these videos to make a virtual, international cello orchestra performance of “Simple Gifts” for the final video.

There is no fee to participate, but we suggest that everyone who takes part donates directly to Rise Against Hunger. Please gather your friends and family together in a team to support your participation in the project through donations to Rise Against Hunger. Who will raise the most to turn cello music into meals?

This course you will be accompanied by Xiaoyong Chen (compositon), Joachim Eijlander (cello), Alfian Emir Adytia (cello, composition and sound artist) and Jeroen den Herder (cello). who will all be present in Zutphen.
This Research Retreat we focus on the exhibition of Ruthi Helbitz Cohen at Dat Bolwerck, home of our Academy. The key to her work is the female body. The retreat includes 2 performances for an audience.
In this course composers and cellists work together. Together with the artist, the composers explore the backgrounds of the subject. Subsequently, they incorporate their inspiration into contemporary compositions, which they share with the participating cellists. Throughout the retreat, the work and performance are refined, and finally, all elements come together in a public performance…
This retreat is open to Master, Post Master and young professionals. Are you a high-level bachelor student? Sometimes we make exceptions, so please contact us if you are interested.
