Bespoke Getaway for Danish Musicians and Artists

We are living in surreal times, and for many musicians and artists the current situation means an indeterminate period without direct engagement with the audience.

Whilst it is of paramount importance to engage in all the steps as advised by our Danish government – the recent statistics that have been presented to us show a glimmer of hope for the coming months, and already various daycare centers and other public buildings are starting slowly to open across the country.

At Scandinavian Cello School we are aware that many musicians and artists are desperate for a change of scene from their isolation in their own studios and homes. Therefore starting Monday 20th April 2020, Scandinavian Cello School will open their doors for any Danish based musicians or artists, who want a bespoke getaway from the city.

We know times are financially tough for all freelance artists and musicians and for this reason we offer stays with a massive 60% reduction from our “regular” price.

Our special “inclusive” getaway package is now offered at 250 kr. per day.
