 Preparations are underway for ICI 2019

Our projected dates for 2019 are July 13- August 4, and the institute will once again be held at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota.

ICI is a unique three-week program for cellists who wish to focus on improving their cello playing and musical skills in a warm and supportive environment. Throughout the institute, students work with our highly-esteemed cello faculty who provide new perspectives and ideas, as well as insightful practice and performance techniques. Students are also given ample practice time and opportunities to perform with collaborative pianists.

The institute is open to advanced cellists ages 12-24. Each summer, students collaborate with an outstanding faculty of teachers and performers in master classes, technique workshops, and private lessons. A new component of the 2019 program places an emphasis on chamber music and sonata coachings in both lessons and masterclasses. Students will also have a multitude of performance opportunities throughout their time at The International Cello Institute.

About ICI

“International Cello Institute is a unique summer program because of it’s highly focused and encouraging environment. Students receive a remarkable amount of time working closely with a variety of world-class faculty in lessons and masterclasses. There is also the opportunity for students to learn from each other as they watch their friends develop musically and personally. In this way, ICI fosters a cellistic learning community that is paramount.” -Student 2013

The camp is held on the campus of St. Olaf College in beautiful Northfield, Minnesota. We have access to large practice rooms, two concert halls, rehearsal spaces, and spacious teaching studios. Our masterclasses are held in a tiered choir room with state-of-the-art video and recording equipment.
