Between the 23rd and 26th of June 2011, the Donegal Chamber Music Society with support from Co. Donegal VEC Music Education Partnership in association with the University of Ulster, the European Strings Teachers Association (ESTA) and the Regional Cultural Centre, will present the 3rd edition of ’Cello Meeting Ireland’. The weekend, based at the Magee Campus in Derry, Northern Ireland, and the Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal, will feature Master Classes in Cello and Chamber Music, given by the internationally renowned cellist and teacher Mihai Dancila. ‘Cello Meeting Ireland’ will give participants the opportunity to have one-on-one tuition from this renowned musician and to attend a variety of musical events happening over the weekend. In addition to this year’s edition we will focus more in Cello Ensemble playing as a complement to the lessons.

The master classes will be complemented by concerts given by participants and by a final concert given by Mihai Dancila with the Donegal Chamber Orchestra and weekend participants.


Participants in the master classes are divided into two categories Active and Observer.
