I have been invited by the Artistic Director, Judith Choi Castro to participate once again in the International Chamber Music Festival and Academy of Music, Tenerife in February 2019. I will be attending the Augustin Aponte International Music Competition as a member of the competition jury from 17-20 February, and from February 21-24 I will be offering cello lessons and chamber music tuition to players of all levels.
The festival promises to be a fine opportunity to immerse yourself in a holiday full of music and sunshine. Everyone is welcome! Whether you are a player coming to take lessons with one of the tutors or you simply want to come and enjoy the feast of music-making on offer as an observer, it all takes place right on your doorstep in the lovely surroundings of the Aguamarina Golf Hotel. It’s a chance to soak up some winter sun in a wonderful atmosphere surrounded by musicians and music-making.
Throughout the festival you can enjoy evening chamber music recitals given by colleagues of violinist and artistic director Judith Choi Castro (who is a regular and highly popular chamber music tutor at Cellos at Belle Serre). There are also informal concerts given by the students taking part in the competition.
I would be delighted if you were interested in joining me and Judith’s superb team of performers for what promises to be an excellent festival of music-making, study and concerts.
You can choose to stay just for a few days or for the whole festival, it’s up to you. Please book your music holiday directly with the festival via their website at
