Cello Masterclass with Emilio Colón

masterclasses
Band Room – Room 1345 – Schoenberg Music Building

American solo cellist, chamber musician, conductor, composer and pedagogue Emilio Colón will host a masterclass with UCLA cello students. The distinguished guest artist will share his wisdom about string technique and shed new light on musical interpretation while unlocking issues that students may struggle with.


Colón is an international artist, concertizing in Canada, Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Guatemala, Hungary, Japan, Korea, Malta, the Netherlands, Puerto Rico, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States.


As the second youngest faculty member to be appointed in the history of the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, Colón is also known as a pedagogue. He has offered courses at the Conservatoire de Paris, the Geneva Conservatoire, the Franz Liszt Academy of Music, and Toho Gakuen in Tokyo. He is also on faculty at the International Festival-Institute at Round Top in Texas and Chamber Music Unbound at the Mammoth Lakes Music Festival in California.


Colón received a bachelor’s degree from the Puerto Rico Conservatory of Music in 1986 as a student of Joaquín Vidaechea, where he won the Pablo Casals Medal upon graduation. As a student and teaching assistant to the distinguished cellist and pedagogue Janos Starker, Colón earned a master’s degree from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in 1989. He won first prize at the Las Americas Festival Solo Competition. Colón plays on a J.B. Vuillaume Cello from 1844 and a Dominique Peccatte bow.
