Announcing: Wednesday, 19 June, Geneva--the Magnificent and Rare Sound of 20 Cellos
l'Orchestre International de Genève
and the London Cello Orchestra,
in association with Arts Global,
20 Cellos for One Rose
Wednesday, 19 June, 8:00pm
Théâtre du Léman, Geneva
An unforgettable concert, given in honour of the 66th annual “Concours International de Roses Nouvelles de Genève” and featuring 20 of Europe’s finest young virtuoso cellists—10 from the London Cello Orchestra and 10 from l'Orchestre International de Genève.
Like the colour of a fine rose, the sound of 20 cellos is unforgettably rich, deep and satisfying.
The performance marks the Swiss conducting debut of Geoffrey Simon, well known to Arts Global friends for his many years of association with the Foundation. On the following day, the ensemble will depart for a high-profile, 8-concert tour of South Korea.

A New Name for the Foundation—and a Broader Vision

"I am proud to introduce the new name of our Foundation, reflecting the expanding scope of our involvement on the world stage."
A foundation empowering emerging artists and advancing social change
"While preserving to the full our original commitment to nurture and mentor talented young artists, and to present memorable artistic experiences for our friends and supporters, over the past two years our outreach and vision have broadened, to embrace projects for cultural diplomacy in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and social change in India and Africa.
"Our three primary centres of activity remain in place. In the US and UK our corporate names, and charity registration, have been changed to Arts Global, Inc. and Arts Global Ltd respectively. In Switzerland, we remain as the Swiss Global Artistic Foundation. For a complete picture of Arts Global as it now stands, please visit Who We Are.
