British Cellist Dr. Sophie Webber is an internationally accomplished soloist, chamber musician, arranger/composer and educator.
A former DM student of Janos Starker and Tsuyoshi Tsutsumi at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, she previously studied with Richard Markson at Trinity College of Music, London, from where she graduated with a First Class Honors degree, as well as the Sir John Barbirolli memorial prize for cello. She was also a Music Theory Instructor at Indiana University for four years.
In 2018, her debut album, "Escape Bach Six Suites for Solo Cello," received widespread critical praise, including Gramophone's description of her playing as "every note has meaning rather as a look or a touch does; the resulting conversations she has with the music are endlessly absorbing." In 2020, she released her segue album, "Bach Cello to Choir," a unique presentation of two of Bach's Cello Suites alongside Webber's own original choral accompaniment, performed by Chicago's Church of the Ascension Choir, Directed by Benjamin Rivera, with vocables provided by former King's Singer baritone and arranger, Philip Lawson, and audio engineering by Chris Willis. Both albums are being aired across the USA.
In 2009, she founded Fused Muse Ensemble (www.fusedmuseensemble.com), an IL npo with a mission to amplify voices too often left unheard through music and mixed media.
