Rebuilding St Paul Chamber Orchestra Announces New Principal Cellist

The Minnesota-based, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra has today announced the appointment of American cellist Julie Albers as their new Principal Cellist.

“We feel extremely fortunate to have Julie Albers become our new Principal Cellist,” Principal Second Violinist and Senior Director of Artistic Planning, Kyu-Young Kim has said, “... she is an extraordinary artist and a seasoned professional that will be able to hit the ground running as one of the key musical leaders of the SPCO.”

A graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music and former prize winner at the ARDs, Douai and Gyeongnam International Music Competitions, Albers has performed numerous times as the orchestra's guest Principal Cellist - and will officially commence her full-time tenure during the 2015-16 season.

“It is a great honour to have accepted the Principal Cello position with the SPCO,” Ms Albers has said, “... this is such a unique and inspiring ensemble for which I have always had the greatest admiration!”

The orchestra has also announced seven guest musicians who will join the ensemble for the 2014-15 season - violinists Luosha Fang and Kayla Moffett, violist Shuangshuang Liu, guest Principal Bassist Zachary Cohen, clarinetist Jonathan Cohen, trumpeter Sycil Mathai – and oboist Barbara Bishop.
