Why the cello instrument is important to Klaipėda? Musicologist Danutė Petrauskaitė created an exhibition on the history of the professional cello school in Lithuania. During the festival cellists and all the curious minds interested in the instrument-making will be able to have a chat with the cello makers who are going to present their craft.
