What's VCC2020 all about?
During a time of social isolation and uncertainty, we must reach out and continue to share the beauty of music, and bring people and communities together. We are also fortunate to live in a day and age where technology allows us to connect globally, so let's reach over the pond and exchange knowledge and skills, forming a global community of cellists! I am sure this will be a heart fulfilling experience for you, your loved ones, and the people around you.
