Cello Fest will be officially opened on Monday 19 September at 8.30 p.m., organized by the Belgrade Festivals Centre (CEBEF), when the audience in the Belgrade Philharmonic Concert Hall will be treated to energetic cello music at a concert by the Viva Cello ensemble, led by Dragan Đorđević Suzuki. (The concert was originally announced for the atrium of Captain Miša’s Mansion, but was moved due to weather conditions.)  


In addition to Dragan Đorđević, the octet of Serbian cellists, who will perform a varied programme, consists of Dejan Božić, Aleksandar Latković, Danijela Milutinović, Nevena Busarac, Sandra Belić, Marko Miletić and Jan Kristof. The programme will include works by Villa-Lobos, Piazzolla, Kaiser-Lindemann, Fauré, Shostakovich, Norman / Barth, Bacharach, Popper.


Tickets can be purchased at the Belgrade Philharmonic box office, as well as online via the website and at Ticket Vision outlets (Belgrade Youth Centre and Ušće Shopping Centre).


Cello Fest, a festival dedicated to the art of playing the cello, is taking place in Belgrade for the twelfth time. After several years’ hiatus, this prestigious event is resumed thanks to the incredible energy of individuals that support this project.


Last year's edition of the Festival called ‘Awakening’ once again brought exceptional foreign guest cellists to the Belgrade stages, and, as always, they were accompanied by numerous Serbian cellists, both young and more experienced ones.


This year, from 19 to 25 September, the audience will have the opportunity to hear the Colombian cello master and laureate of the world's largest competitions Santiago Cañón-Valencia, the Serbian cellist Petar Pejčić, who is the laureate and youngest finalist of the last edition of the Queen Elizabeth Competition, as well as the ensemble of the best Serbian cellists. Traditionally, several master classes and presentations will be held.


Cello Fest was supported by KBV Datacom and music schools ‘Vladimir Đorđević’, ‘Mokranjac’ and ‘Dr Vojislav Vučković’.
