Soncello is an association that groups all those who have in common a passion: the cello. We are people with diverse paths but we all feel the cello as our travel buddy, our voice, our working tool, our passion. Hence the choice of the name Soncello: voice, identity and music in a single term. We believe that union makes strength and our intention is that those who feel the cello in this way work together sharing music and activities.
We are already almost 100 people integrating Soncello. If you are a professional cellist, student, amateur or you feel linked in a special way with the cello, come and join us! you are welcome to become a member.
Our goals are:
Promoting activities with the aim of boosting the culture and the knowledge about the cello in Galicia departing from this triangle:
- Xuntanza Soncello: day (s) of annual character in which partners, supporters and fans of the cello can share live their passion through various activities related to the cello.
- Competitions: focused primarily on cello students of the Conservatories, Schools and Music Academies of Galicia with the main objective to motivate in order to encourage practicing and self-improvement.
- Courses and master-classes: given by contrasting figures of our instrument both in the interpretive field and in the educational one.
In the same way we understand that the organization of lectures, conferences and courses of related matters are very important to enrich and complement the musical education of cellists (relaxation techniques, orientation to the professional world, techniques to overcome the scenic fear, physical preparation for the study, meetings of teachers, etc.).
