WALTHAM FOREST CELLO FEST needs your help.
As you can imagine the Covid-19 epidemic already affected our festival. Similarly as millions of people everywhere. Out of concern for the safety of our public and musicians, and in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), we have decided to postpone some of our concerts for a later dates and to introduce various cello projects online.
Please consider supporting the 2nd WALTHAM FOREST CELLO FEST 2020 in London. To help us to resume our cello concert and recitals, to support our cellists affected by COVID-19 and to bring our cello activities online to you.
Thank you for helping us to survive this difficult time!
