創辦人暨藝術總監、藝術節團隊  謹致

In 2024, the Taiwan International Cello Festival (TWICF) will take place for the first time. We are looking forward to a brilliant multi-day celebration dedicated to the cello and to creating memorable moments, which we are excited to share with you!

For us cellists, it's clear, but also for many music enthusiasts: The cello is the most beautiful instrument! Its warm sound touches our souls and inspired great composers to write some of the most beautiful works in the classical repertoire. But the cello also has surprising sides, which you will experience in unforgettable and varied concerts.

Our international guests, renowned cello masters, as well as distinguished professors from Taiwan, share their passion for the cello and their friendship both on and off the stage.

Young cellists will have the valuable opportunity to meet the greats of the cello world and gain inspiration in master classes, featuring Jens Peter Maintz, Wen-Sinn Yang, Christian Poltéra, and Stephan Braun (Jazz cello) this year. The master classes are open to interested audiences.

An additional open-air concert, in collaboration with Samsiu Garden in Yunlin and the Academy of Taiwan Strings, will not only delight the audience with beautiful folksong arrangements for cello and string orchestra but also provide an opportunity for you to play along. Regardless of age or skill level, simply bring your cello and enjoy playing together.

Save the dates!

We are looking forward to this happening with great anticipation!

Pi-Chin Chien
Founder & Artistic Director & Team
