Welcome to New Cellist Anna Stuart

We are delighted to welcome Anna Stuart as our new No. 9 Cello.

Anna began learning the cello at age 7 and went on to attend Junior Academy, where she was a pupil of Penelope Lynex and Ben Davies. At 18, having tried out a number of other instruments with varying success, she decided to make a go of it with the cello and auditioned for the BMus(Hons) course at the RNCM in Manchester, from which she graduated in 2008 under the tutelage of Emma Ferrand. Following a year-long internship in orchestral management, Anna then moved to Düsseldorf to join the class of Gregor Horsch at the Robert Schumann Hochschule, completing her MMus in Orchestral Performance in 2013.
