The Belgium Cello Society ASBL
The Belgium Cello Society ASBL is an initiative led by cellist and Artistic Director Han Bin Yoon to organize, promote, and support cello playing in Belgium. In 2017, the renowned Queen Elisabeth Competition presented the cello competition for the first time in its long history, instantly propelling the cello to the forefront of the Belgian audiences’ minds. With the cello’s rapidly growing popularity and interest, the Belgium Cello Society fills the void in the Belgian music scene and elevates the cello voice to its newfound prominence.
