Cellist and Conductor Michael Nebe Has Passed Away - image attachment

 

Born in Germany, Nebe studied at the Musik-Hochschule in Dortmund, King’s College London, where he gained his master's degree. He also studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London under Florence Hooton and Colin Hampton. After his London debut at the Wigmore Hall, he toured worldwide as a cellist with concerts, TV, and radio performances in Europe, the USA, Canada, and Australia.

Nebe studied conducting in Dortmund and later in London with Lawrence Leonard. He made his professional conducting debut at 16 with the Dortmund Philharmonic Orchestra.

In 1990, he became the Musical Director and conductor of the Whitehall Orchestra and the Fine Arts Sinfonia.

"The Whitehall Orchestra are very sad to learn of the death of our musical director and conductor Michael Nebe on Friday 8th October," the ensemble wrote on their Facebook. "We have many happy memories of playing with Michael and listening to his stories and will miss him hugely. Our thoughts and best wishes are with his family and friends."

Until his illness, Nebe was active as a conductor, cellist, teacher, and adjudicator. He was a member of the Plaegan Piano Trio, of which he was a founding member in 1978.

Our condolences to Nebe's family, friends, and colleagues.
