EUYO’s first Cremona Residency

EUYO members and alumni will work with world-renowned cellist Steven Isserlis as part of the EUYO’s first residence as Ensemble in Residence at the Stauffer Center for Strings


03/12/2021 - The EUYO is delighted to announce its first residency in Cremona, from 5 to 9 December, at the Stauffer Center for Strings. A select group of EUYO string players will rehearse, debate and hold workshops in the enviable setting of the new Center for strings at the Stauffer Academy, honing and refining their skills with world-renowned cellist Steven Isserlis.

During the residency, the EUYO musicians and alumni will be able to meet other international students, and attend a variety of events organised by the Stauffer Academy, including the Stauffer Talks and the 8 December concert to be given by violinist Daniel Hope with his students. The EUYO residency at the Stauffer Center for Strings aims to be a moment in which artists, teachers and students can meet, share ideas, learn, and creatively celebrate string instrument performance.

The collaboration with EUYO goes exactly in this direction”, said Director-General of the Stauffer Center for Strings, Paolo Petrocelli, “bringing to Cremona talented musicians coming from all over Europe to make music together, while launching a strong message of unity, tolerance and hope for all the world”.

Marshall Marcus, EUYO Secretary General, commented, “The EUYO is absolutely delighted to be working with the new Stauffer Center for Strings, an initiative with a perfect balance of tradition and innovation, surely both vital qualities for successful 21st century musicians.”  

On December 9, at 19.30 CET, as a culmination of the residency, Isserlis will lead the EUYO musicians in a chamber music concert, together with fellow Stauffer Academy musicians. The concert will be visible also online through a dedicated livestream on the Stauffer Center for String’s YouTube channel.
