A hardworking, fun loving musician keen to start work and new challenges.
Miriam has just completed her fourth and final year as a cellist studying with Sally Pendlebury at the Royal Northern College of Music. Last year she was awarded a place on Erasmus to study in Essen, Germany with Professor Young-Chang Cho. Her first two years at RNCM were under the guidance of Nicholas Trygstad, principle of the Hallé Orchestra, who also taught her for her two years at the JRNCM. Prior to the RNCM she began her cello studies with a local teacher Eleanor Kellett who soon saw her potential and recommended study with Sue Lowe in York. Miriam has performed concertos with orchestras including Saint Saëns, Vivaldi double, Elgar, Schumann, Haydn and Tchaikovsky. She has participated in only one international competition receiving second prize in the Lyon's competition. Miriam also took part in music courses to further her education, such as 'Gathering of the Clans' with her previous teacher Sue Lowe and also Hannah Robert’s cello course. There she gained valuable teaching and played in master classes with Sandy Bailie, Pierre Doumenge, Anna Shuttleworth, Tim Lowe, Matthew Lowe, Leandro Silvera and Hannah Roberts. Since being a conservatoire student, Miriam has had further master-classes with Miklós Perényi, Ralph Kirshbaum, Emma Ferrand and Steven Doane, as well as being awarded two prizes: The Amy Lindley Prize for Cello and The John Webster memorial Prize. Miriam is a keen chamber musician recently winning the Hirsch Prize with the Mobski Quartet at the RNCM and performing Ligeti's String Quartet No.1 at the Budafest Chamber Music Festival. She has also been awarded a place on the Professional Experience Scheme with the BBC Philharmonic. Recently she performed Tchaikovsky Rococo variations with both High Peak Orchestra and Ameretti Chamber ensemble and performed concerts at Lasham Music Festival with the Mobski Quartet. Since graduating in July 2017, Miriam has gained a place at the Aaron Copland School of Music in New York to study Masters with teacher Marcy Rosen starting August 2018. Her long term aspirations include performing as much as possible, in particular chamber music, while in the meantime creating contacts in hope of one day forming an ensemble of her own.
