I am a cellist available for orchestral, chamber music and session work.
Molly did exactly what we asked of her and we were very happy with her performance.
Molly McWhirter is a Scottish cellist born in Linlithgow and began playing the cello at nine years old. Having graduated with a Bachelor of Music Degree with Honours from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, she now studies her Masters in Performance with Ursula Smith at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Molly’s passion for orchestral music has been central to her development as a cellist, resulting in her achieving a place on the BBCSSO Professional Experience Scheme in 2016. She was also awarded First Prize in the John McInulty Prize for Orchestral String Playing at the RCS. In the past she has participated in many different orchestras, a highlight being Principal Cello of the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland on their 2015 tour of China. Molly has also led the cellos in the Edinburgh Youth Orchestra and projects at the RCS. She has enjoyed playing alongside other professional ensembles such as LSO, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, RSNO, Scottish Ensemble and Hebrides Ensemble. Eager to develop her professionalism in Orchestral Playing Molly was lucky enough to participate in a public master class with LSO Principal Cellist Rebecca Gilliver upon starting her studies at Guildhall. Molly’s love of chamber music has led her to study with the London Haydn Quartet in Summer 2015, and receive string quartet master classes with members of the Endellion Quartet, Chilingirian Quartet, Heath Quartet and Brodsky Quartet. With her quartet in Glasgow she won second place in the Mabel Glover String Quartet Prize in 2015. Molly was also a finalist in the Governors’ Recital Prize for Strings in April 2016. She feels fortunate to have received master classes from some of the world’s top musicians such as Maria Kliegel, Pieter Wispelwey, Erkii Lahesmaa, Thomas Carroll and Robert Max.
