George C. is a crossover cellist hailing from Toronto, Canada. He traces his family lineage to fiddlers in County Clare, Ireland, and a family of proud Jewish musicians descended from Felix Mendelssohn. A recent graduate of the Berklee College of Music, George aspires to forge a new linguistic path for the cello by integrating elements from Eastern, Celtic, and Jazz traditions. Recently he performed domestically and abroad with oud / violin virtuoso, Simon Shaheen, as well as American fiddle guru, Darol Anger. He currently resides in New York City.
George is excited to meet new students, and empower them with musical information and inspiration!
