About Rebecca

I am a freelance cellist based in the Midlands. I have a wealth of experience in solo, chamber and orchestral performance and session work.
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Verified profile

I am a professional cellist based in Worcestershire. I was awarded sholarships to both the Purcell School and the Royal College of music where I studied with awe inspiring teachers Joan Dickson and Steven Doane. I have been lucky enough to have had some fantastic solo performing experiences including playing to HRH Prince of Wales, playing a C minor Vivaldi Concerto at St Martin in the Field accompanied by the London Soloist Orchestra and performed at venues such as Birmingham Symphony Hall, St Johns Smith Square, Regent Hall Oxford Street, Buckingham Palace, Buxton Opera House Theatre, Centenary Square, Birmingham as a chamber musician. Further afield venues include Odessa National Academy of Music and in Tel Aviv the Buchmann Mehta School of Music. At present I am juggling a varied musical career with family life. Inspired by my own teachers, I am a committed teacher myself but my passion is still playing and performing as much as I can. I am passionate about providing very high quality music for weddings and events and love playing solo , performing with Duo Rose and I'm the co owner of The String of Roses. I am also an experienced session musician and can be regularly found recording for many artists including Black Sabbath legend Tony Iommi most recently. My musical tastes are quite eclectic and I enjoy the challenge of something different!

Rebecca played at our wedding for the ceremony and the first dance. She was absolutely fantastic and is very talented. She worked with us on the run up to the wedding, helping us select songs and even learning a new one for the day. All of our guests were very complimentary. Rebecca was very professional and the communication was first class. I would highly recommend Rebecca to anyone looking for a Cellist for their event. Thank you so much Rebecca, you made our day.

“I recently booked Rebecca to play at my daughter’s wedding. She was punctual, professional and very flexible and willing to adapt to circumstances which changed at the last minute. Her playing is breathtakingly beautiful; she has a rich tone and a wonderful sense of lyricism in her playing. I would recommend Rebecca as a cellist at your event or function.”

“Rebecca Rose joined my quartet that I set up in 2001 two years ago.I can genuinely say I have never had the privilege of playing with such a wonderful player in every way. She plays with such immense depth and musicality and is also technically incredible.She is also a lovely,easy going and amenable person to spend so much time playing with.I feel so fortunate to know her and play with her.”
