Check out CelloBride’s beautiful music: https://cellobride.com/ and bio below:
CelloBride (Audrey Nadeau) has both a B.M. and a M.M. in classical cello performance from the Juilliard School, where she had the privilege to serve as principal cellist for the Juilliard Orchestra. While free-lancing in NYC and the USA for almost 10 years, she had the opportunity to perform numerous times in Carnegie Hall, The Metropolitan Museum, The Kennedy Center as well as in Lincoln Center. Originally from Montreal (QC), Audrey studied at the Montreal Conservatory from the age of 15 years old. While completing her studies in Montreal, she won several competitions such as the: Canadian Music Competition in 2004 and the Radio-Canada Young Artist Program (2002). In 2006, she was selected to be interviewed and performed in a TV program animated by Gregory Charles, called Virtuoso’s. Ms. Nadeau started perfecting her skills by playing for famous Masters around the world, such as Janos Starker, when she was only 13 years old – the same year she had her first solo performance with a symphonic orchestra. After completing her studies, Ms. Nadeau perfected her cello teaching skills by attending a Suzuki Teacher Training. Her teaching is one of her most cherished musical activities to this day. She contributed to the faculty of several Conservatories in NYC, and many of her pupils made their debut in Carnegie Hall. Newly established on Vancouver Island, Ms. Nadeau is currently learning new musical skills such as playing the electric cello, improvising, composing and recording.See you there!
