Leah is a versatile freelance cellist, currently in her final year of study at the Royal Academy of Music under the tuition of Josephine Knight. Originally from Bristol, Leah began learning the cello with her mother before studying intensely with Bruno Schrecker, former member of the Allegri String Quartet and pupil of Pablo Casals. During this time, Leah won an exhibition award from Trinity Guildhall for her Grade 8 mark and was a finalist in multiple competitions, such as the Bath Young Musician of the Year, before gaining an entrance scholarship to study at the Academy. Leah has participated in masterclasses with the likes of Guy Johnston, Cristoph Richter and Matthew Barley. As an experienced orchestral player, Leah has performed under the baton of some of today’s most acclaimed conductors, such as Sir Mark Elder, Edward Gardner and Christian Thielemann. Her commitment to orchestral playing has enabled her to tour Germany and Poland. As a member of the Orlando Trio, she recently gave a series of concerts in Florence, Italy, and in multiple venues in the South West of England. Recent solo engagements include a performance of the Saint-Saens Cello Concerto and recitals at the Bristol Music Club.
