Cellists aged between 18 and 31 years of age could apply until Wednesday 8 December 2021. In January, the videos of the candidates will be screened by an international jury behind closed doors. The candidates will be informed individually of the results of the selection process by 15 March 2022 at the latest, after which the public will also get to know their names.


Tickets for the 2022 Cello Competition will be available as from Tuesday 22 February 2022, subscriptions as from Tuesday the 1st of February 2022.
