About Bryony

Versatile and committed cellist, working in Newbury, London and Cardiff.
Cellist
Newbury
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Bryony Rawstron is an enthusiastic and versatile cellist from Reading, Berkshire. She completed her undergraduate degree at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2019 and was involved in many different concerts and projects over the four years. Notably, leading the RWCMD Symphony Orchestra on many occasions in different venues and leading the section for ‘The Magic Flute’ at the Sherman Theatre with the RWCMD Opera Orchestra. Bryony has always had a passion for musical theatre, but it was during her undergraduate studies that she realised this was to be a prominent part of her musical life and performed as the cellist in performances of ‘Company’ and ‘Sweeney Todd’. Similarly, her most recent pit orchestra appearances were in ‘My Fair Lady’ in Basingstoke and ‘Oliver’ in Cardiff. She was also lucky enough to perform in many of the visiting artist’s masterclasses at RWCMD, most notably Paul Watkins and Narek Hakhnazaryan. Bryony has always involved herself with many UK and overseas orchestral courses, including the International Lutoslawski Youth Orchestra, the International Cello Academy, and the Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra. She is also the cellist for two musical theatre groups, the Technicolour Choir and Multishow Production’s ‘All That Cabaret’, both of which she has had a fantastic couple of years with playing at multiple venues across England and Wales. Due to her versatile nature, Bryony has also recorded and written parts on many videos and albums, most recently including the ‘Sister Sessions’ album and the theme tune for a popular ‘Harry Potter’ podcast – both available on all platforms. Outreach and community music work is also a prominent part of Bryony’s musical career. Alongside her teaching and ensemble work through Berkshire Maestros, she has helped run projects in the Royal London Hospital, Robson House Referral Unit, and with Wigmore Hall in the ‘Music for Thought’ program for people living with dementia through the Open Academy department at the Royal Academy of Music. It is this fantastic institution that Bryony will graduate from this summer, with a Master of Performance degree and she is looking forward to what will come next.

Customer questions

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I have my own cello microphone and equipment, so just need a speaker or PA to plug in to.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

This will depend on the time frame given, but as long as I have the time I will ensure I can meet as many of your requests as possible. If the request means I need to make a whole new arrangement, this will mean an extra fee but this will depend on the song or piece and will be very minimal.
