About The Artists
Cellos 4 are all professional cellists trained at London Music Conservatoires, and experienced in orchestral and chamber music playing in England, Scotland and Wales.
Since settling in Devon with their growing families they have had numerous engagements with groups such as The Ten Tors Orchestra, The Bach Society, The Divertimento Orchestra, Taunton Sinfonietta, New Devon Opera, The Clifton Quartet, Exeter Contemporary Sounds, The Four Seasons Quartet, and The Beare Trio. In addition to this they all find themselves from time to time in far flung beauty spots in deepest Devon and beyond, playing at weddings and special events.
It was during an orchestral rehearsal at Exeter Cathedral in 2011, that the idea of Cellos4 was born. Several months later, enthused by the sumptuous sound and excited by the rich repertoire, we emerged to give our debut performance at Glenorchy Church, Exmouth in October 2013. Concerts followed at the Flavel Arts Centre in Dartmouth, Classical Cafe in Cullompton, St Giles in Sidbury, Lympstone Parish Church.
