Hannah Whitehead, cello

Cellist Hannah Whitehead has garnered acclaim for her "warm and winning" sound and for the "knife-edge, fearless precision" of her interpretations. She is a recent graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, where she earned a Master of Music degree and studied with David Premo. Hannah's already varied career has included studies at the Eastman School of Music, a fellowship at the New World Symphony, and performances around the world with the Youth Orchestra of the Americas. She has also been a member of the National Repertory Orchestra, the National Orchestral Institute, and has performed at the Spoleto Festival (USA). Her musical travels have taken her to Japan, where she performed chamber music in Yokohama and Tokyo; she has also traveled to England, where as a fellow of the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme, she studied and performed works of Benjamin Britten in the composer's birthplace. Hannah was recently appointed Assistant Principal Cellist of the West Virginia Symphony.
