Competition 2024

The 2024 Colorado Cello Summit Cello Competition will take place during the 2024 summit.  As the focus in 2024 is preparing orchestral excerpts, the competition will be held in the format of a professional orchestral audition.  There will be 3 different levels and each contestant will perform their excerpts behind a screen.  Each round will be judged by other participants and professional cellists.  There isn't any signup, or video submissions, participants can decide on the day of the summit if they would like to compete for some amazing prizes and get valuable practice at orchestral auditions.   we are so proud to announce this years winners!
