The cello orchestra Baden-Württemberg will once again be part of the Cello Akademie Rutesheim in 2021 and will present itself after 5 days of rehearsal on November 5 at 7:30 pm in our concert hall (Halle Bühl 2) with the usual impressive sound of many cellos.
The cellist Gunther Tiedemann will again be tutor of the cello-orchestra this year – with experience and a good dose of nonchalance. A colleague from England will join him this year: Rupert Gillett.
Every cellist is welcome, from beginner to prize winner, from the little cello-elf to the cello enthusiast in the retirement age.
This year the rehearsal-times are knowingly chosen in order to guarantee every participant to both listen to the master classes and the concerts in the evening. The fee for visiting the master classes is included into your course fee.
