Scandinavian Cello School

05 Feb 2022

Winner of the national “firesoul personality award”: DR P2 Årets ildsjæl 2022

From the jury:

“With his infectious nature, human generosity and unstoppable energy, it is with the Scandinavian Cello School at Stevns that Jacob Shaw succeeded in creating a modern collective with classical music as a natural focal point.

The artistic development of young musicians achieved in an exemplary fashion alongside original ways to develop the local community – with music as a dynamic force.

At Stevns, musical meetings are not only a source of human joy, but also the part of the efforts for better animal welfare and sustainable nature for years to come.”
