Adjudicator: Joely Koos
Joely pursues a varied musical career as a chamber musician, soloist and orchestral principal. Performing as co-principal with the City of London Sinfonia and the London Chamber Orchestra, she is also guest principal with most other leading UK orchestras.
Recently Joely was the soloist in two world premieres in one week: as solo cellist with the City of London Sinfonia at Southwark Cathedral in a performance of Roddy WiIliam’s “Homage to Bach’s Bourée”; and the following day she performed a new solo cello work written for her by Jacob Thompson Bell as part of the Music/Non classical festival in Leeds.
Other ventures in the last few years include participating as solo cellist at several music festivals including The Fitzfest and The Suffolk cello festival, and appearing as soloist in Schumann’s cello concerto with the “Amadeus” ensemble.
For over twenty years Joely has very much enjoyed being professor of Cello at Trinity Laban Conservatoire. She has been invited to give masterclasses at the Cello Society, is a regular masterclass coach at the Pro Corda cello course and is cello tutor for the Hertfordshire County Youth Orchestra.
Educated at Chethams School as a joint first study pianist and cellist, Joely subsequently won scholarships to both Cambridge University and then the Royal Academy of Music. Finishing her studies at the Banff International Music Centre with a scholarship from the Munster Trust, Joely went on to be a prizewinner in the Jacqueline Du Pre International Competition.
